Picture of a bay with beaches, a village and a sheltering island

An impression from a beautiful summer afternoon on Islay’s neighbour Jura. This is the Bay of Small Isles on the east coast of Jura. Jura’s main settlement Craighouse with the distillery on the right. One of the small isles the name comes from on the left, Eilean nan Gabhar.

Picture of a small coastal village with a long pier, seen from a mountain above the villageCraighouse is the main settlement on Islay’s neighbour Jura. This view is from the summit of one of the Paps of Jura, Beinn Shiantaidh. While parts are hidden by the lower hills below you can the roofs of the distillery and the hotel on the right hand side. Clearly visible the long new pier in the centre of the picture. I believe the houses slightly inland towards the bottom left of the picture are in Keils.
