Ardcraig

A warm welcome in the heart of Craighouse

George Orwell once described Jura as 'ungettable to' but, in fact, there are several ways to get here!

 

Direct to Jura

 

The Jura Passenger Ferry runs direct from Tayvallich near Lochgilphead to Craighouse on Jura.  The boat berths at the stone pier by the shop, just 10 minutes walk from Ardcraig.

 

The ferry connects with public transport to / from Glasgow and Oban several times a week.  Check the website for details.  If you are driving to Tayvallich, please make sure you leave your car in the designated ferry parking by the village hall (just past the ferry) and take note of the suggested parking donations.  

 

The passenger ferry is also available by private charter both during the season and throughout the off season.

 

Via Islay

 

There is a regular ferry service from Port Askaig on Islay to Feolin on Jura. There are scheduled crossings between 7.30am and 6.30pm 6 days a week, with additional bookable sailings outwith these times and a reduced Sunday service.  Please search the Argyll and Bute Council website for the most up to date version of the timetable.  You do not need to book your car for a scheduled crossing (out of hour crossings must be booked in advance).

 

To get to Islay you can catch one of the several CalMac ferries that leave Kennacraig on the Mull of Kintyre each day, or one of their ferries departing Oban on specific days of the week.  Vehicle bookings must be made in advance or cars can be left in the car park at the ferry terminal.

 

You can also fly to Islay from Glasgow or Edinburgh via Loganair, or from Colonsay and Oban with Hebridean Air Services.
