Below is a list of Relevant Websites for the Isle of Jura off the west coast of Scotland, RS-Jura. Jura is situated about 30 miles off the west coast of Scotland at the Mull of Kintyre.

Large car ferries run about 4 times a day each way between Kennacraig on the Mull of Kintyre, and Port Ellen or Port Askaig on the Isle of Islay. There is then a small Car Ferry that runs from Port Askaig to the Isle of Jura, only a five minute crossing between the Islands.

The two ways to drive to Kennacraig are up past Loch Lomond, then down through Inverary, or cross to the Isle of Arran from Ardrossan, then take the small Ferry from the north of Arran to the Mull of Kintyre.

There is also a small passenger only Ferry from Tayvallich in Argyll to Craighouse on Jura. Jura is popular for Walking, Hiking, great remote Beaches, Fishing, Shooting, and the Isle of Jura Whisky Distillery.
