A view of Craighouse, the main settlement on Jura, from Ardfernal Hill on a beautiful calm June evening in 2019. Unfortunately it also meant the midges were out in force, meaning I couldn’t enjoy this view for very long.

A beautiful calm and peaceful June late evening on the east coast of Jura. The islands of the Bay of Small Isles in the last light just before sunset, seen from Ardfernal Hill. Some of the hills on Islay in the far distance.

I had hoped to see her under sail, but it wasn’t meant to be. This is the Flying Dutchman, a regular visitor to Islay and Jura, spotted in the Sound of Jura motoring north. We were on a RIB returning to Craighouse (where we had passed the Flying Dutchman when we left) from the Corrycreckan whirlpool.
