Jura Passenger Ferry

Jura Passenger Ferry

Day trip to the Isle of Jura

When author George Orwell wrote his famous novel “1984” on Jura, as well as describing the island as an unforgettable place, he also said it was an extremely un-getatable place.  But things have changed since the 1940s!

The Jura Passenger Ferry runs from Tayvallich which is a short drive away from Crinan. and the crossing to Craighouse on Jura takes less than an hour in a covered Stormforce 11 Redbay RIB.  (NOTE: booking is essential) Once on the island you can go on a tour of the Jura Distillery and have lunch at the Jura Hotel both of which are less than 5 minutes walk from the ferry jetty or you can just stroll around enjoying the scenery.

Boat trips at Crinan on MV Sgarbh

MV SgarbhThe Sgarbh is a fully restored classic motor boat moored at Crinan right outside the hotel which overlooks the Crinan Canal, the gateway to the Atlantic and the islands.

The Sgarbh (gaelic for cormorant, the sea bird) was built in 1947 on the river Clyde in Glasgow as a herring fishing boat. She retired from fishing in 1953 and then was beautifully fitted out below for cruising.

She is built of teak, fully varnished and completely original, the last of her type. Weighing over 20 tons and at 40 foot long she is solid and safe.

Boat trips and more extensive charters can be tailored to suit your preferences with personalised itineraries.
