Things to do on Jura


There are plenty of walking routes on the island, some that are clearer to follow than others, which offer the ideal opportunity to get away from all civilisation and explore the more remote areas of the island. 

A green paperback book of walks on Jura can be purchased on the ferry or in the bookshop in Bowmore on Islay which has maps and instructions for around 30 routes. 


Wildlife watching 

There is an abundance of wildlife on the island including otters, dolphins, seals, red deer, hen harriers, golden eagles, buzzards, gannets, wild goats and lots more. It is almost impossible to drive from one end of the island to another without seeing at least the red deer, seals and buzzards.

Sea Kayaking

The Jura coastline is brilliant for sea kayaking, there are caves to explore and sheltered bays to paddle through with plenty of places to camp along the route. More information can be found on the Sea Kayak trips link on the "about Jura" page.



As with the sea kayaking, the coastline of Jura offers great views and sheltered bays with a number of purpose built moorings. More information can be found on the Jura Development Trust website.
