Behind the holiday cottage is nothing but thousands of acres of grass and heather-
River, loch and sea fishing may be organized through the Forest Estate Manager by prior arrangement.
Jura (meaning 'island of deer') is particularly famous for its red deer which will always be seen on the hills behind the house but, at certain times of the year, will also graze close to the garden. The fields in front of the house are a wildlife haven with a number of resident birds including heron, oystercatchers and greylag geese. Other wildlife seen around Jura are otters, black grouse and eagles as well as seabirds and the handsome Highland cattle.
Photographers, artists and nature lovers will appreciate the beauty of the surrounding wilderness. Keen walkers may trek to the north end of Jura to glimpse the fearsome Corryvreckan whirlpool in the narrow straits between Jura and the smaller island of Scarba.
Bicycle hire and boat trips can be arranged -
