A Road Trip On The Isle of Jura, Inner Hebrides, Scotland

Scroll down to content

Looking back through my photos, I realised that I haven’t really posted much about Jura, an Inner Hebridean Island on the west coast of Scotland, and our trip to the only whisky distillery on the island.  So I thought I better rectify that before our 2018 Scottish holiday, in fact the Jura trip was 2016…..where does time go.  We spent a couple of days on the island, and the first morning before the whisky festival started, we went for a drive from Craighouse, the main settlement which is at the southern end of Small Isle Bay, to see how far we could go on the islands only main road.  We did quite well, but in the end, husband refused to go any further due to the condition of the road, so he said…….but I know, he really just wanted to go back and start tasting the whisky, which is one of his favourites. I will post later about the whisky tasting, and an old burial site I found.  The photos are a record of the drive, with the Paps of Jura, three mountains on the western side of the island, which are always in the background.

      1. Here near Woodstock NY in the US has a lot of them too, thanks goodness! The view of the mountains and trees is gorgeous, and the Hudson River is nearby too.

      2. Yes you have some wonderful places in the US, my brother has lived there for over 40 years and we have visited a few times and enjoyed every trip 🙂

  1. Lovely to see more of your Scottish travels. I remember reading last year about the Caledonian ferry you took around some of the Scottish Islands. They were lovely photos too.
