Small, wild, rugged and remote, breaks to Jura offer a retreat from the hubbub of everyday life. This long and narrow island boasts a mountainous centre making a distinctive silhouette on the horizon, and just 200 residents are outnumbered by the population of 5,000 wild deer. Whisky lovers can tour and taste at Jura’s independent distilleries, learning why the islands of this wild ‘whisky coast’ produce arguably the best Scotch there is. Artists and authors have long been inspired by the dramatic yet tranquil beauty of the isle, such as George Orwell who retreated here to complete his novel 1984. On breaks to Jura find your own inspiration and fall in love with this remote idyll.
