Once you get to the Isle of Islay, you should find time and visit the Isle of Jura, with the only distillery on the island at the helm.

Paps of Jura are a landmark of Isle of Jura – they are perfectly visible from many places on Islay.

The easiest way to reach the Jura from Islay is to use a small ferry, which takes off from Port Askaig and flows through the strait, directly to the Jura – Feolin Ferry. It takes about 10 minutes, and the shuttle departs generally at least once per hour. Of course you can go with the car, bicycle or motorbike. A mean of transport in the Jura is needed.

During the trip we can enjoy the beautiful views of Islay and Jura. In the middle of the strait you will see Caol Ila.

The main island’s center of civilization is Craighouse. There is a distillery and the Jura Hotel. You can also find there a shop, a bar and a small eatery, a school, a medical clinic and private houses.

Small tasting never did anyone any harm. Particularly interesting two fetival bottles.

Isle of Jura is a great place for hiking, cycling or motorcycling. Every moment you can meet a deer, and even when you don’t see it, it can be definitely heard. This time I went to the north western part, to the Barnhill, a place where George Orwell wrote “Nineteen Eighty Four”. Farther north there is Corryvreckan Whirlpool – the third largest sea whirl in the world. To see it you have to hit the appropriate weather conditions (wind, current, etc.).
