Craighouse Jura

From Feolin Ferry to Craighouse, Isle of Jura, Scotland

On our trip to Jura in 2016, the ferry from Islay, docked at Feolin and then we drove to Craighouse, the main settlement on Jura.  We were travelling to Jura for the Whisky Festival, but we also wanted to explore a little of the Island, which is beautiful, wild and remote.  This post is the trip to Craighouse and then a few of the harbour, there are a few islands in the harbour and collectively they are called The Small Isles.  The weather wasn’t that great, it started fine, but progressed to brolly and mac, in a very short time, but it was still very beautiful.  More to follow.

Romantic Milestone, Isle of Jura, Scotland

In two days, we are going to Scotland for our May holiday, but this year we are going for eighteen days.  We have never been away from home this long before, and have lots of things planned, but I have a horrible feeling the weather is not going to be as nice this year, as it was last year.  We have been very lucky in the past, so fingers crossed we get a few rain free days 🙂  I still have lots of photos from last year, but I shall just keep posting them.  I found this milestone in 2016 (I collect photos of milestones and have a category for them) at Craighouse, the only main settlement on the Isle of Jura.  I think it says Craighouse one mile to the Ferry, until thirty years ago you could catch a car ferry direct from the mainland, but now there is only the car ferry from Islay.  There is small high speed ferry from the mainland for foot passengers, so the milepost could be of use again.  But this post is really where the sign is positioned, just look at that view, beautiful.
