GETTING HERE

Please note:  Port Askaig is open for the ferry running between Islay and Jura.

There are many ways to get to Jura, the island sits due west of Glasgow.  It's a 2.5hr drive from Glasgow with regular buses connecting with both the passenger ferry or the car ferry, or you can fly to Islay, or into Craighouse by seaplane.

 

Jura Passenger Ferry

The best way to get to us in the summer months we think is by passenger ferry, 50mins straight from the mainland into Craighouse on a fast catamaran.  You can leave your car at Tayvallich or get the bus, the 425 Lochgilphead to Tayvallich bus service links up with the passenger ferry which goes on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays & Saturdays. 

 

A single journey on the Jura Passenger Ferry is £27.50, children under 5, bikes and dogs are free. For bookings, information, public transport, port information, and timetables visit www.jurapassengerferry.com or call Nicol on +44(0)7768 450000.

If coming by foot please let us know if you need picking up from Jura pier and we can pick you up (£10 pickup charge) or arrange taxi and drop you back down again (£10 drop off charge) or get Jura Cycles to leave bikes for you.  We are 5km from the pier on Jura.

If you would like to hire a car when you are here we can help with that.

Calmac Car Ferry

19th June - 30th July 2024 Disruption to Port Askaig (Calmac ferries only) all ferries diverted to Port Ellen during this period but it's only a 40 min drive.

Alternatively if you would like to bring your car then you can get to Jura via neighbouring island of Islay.  Calmac ferries leave from the port at Kennacraig up to 5 times a day and land alternating between Port Askaig or Port Ellen ports on Islay. 

 

If you get the ferry to Port Askaig that's the same port that the smaller Jura ferry goes from so this is ideal.  If you go to Port Ellen its about 40min drive to Port Askaig to get over to Jura. As soon as you have secured your accommodation please book your ferry and please make sure you take out travel insurance against unforseen events.
