Immerse yourself in Jura

Mountainous, wild and sparsely populated, Jura has a rugged and remote appeal. The island’s distinctive peaks, the Paps of Jura, offer fantastic hillwalking, and intrepid hikers can explore the uninhabited – and otherwise inaccessible – west coast. 

 

One thing you’re sure to see when you visit Jura is red deer. Jura is the eighth largest Scottish island and yet only around 200 people live here. The deer population by contrast numbers between 6,000 and 7,000. Jura is also home to Jura Distillery.
