As one of the wildest places in Scotland, Jura has a slightly different feel from many of the other Scottish islands we've written about on our blog. Sure, you'll find people there (only around 200 of them) and a pub (yes, 1) on Jura, but you'll also find thousands of deer (5,500 red deer, to be exact), soaring mountains, and more incredibly beautiful nature. The long and narrow shape of the island gives it a unique layout, making Jura an excellent place for remote walks. We wanted to highlight our favourite things to see and do on Jura, let's get into the article:
