Islay and Jura - 5 day tour

Tour Summary

Islay and Jura
5 day/4 night

The contrasting Hebridean islands of Islay and Jura are the focus of this leisurely tour. First, explore Islay, famous for farming and whisky production. We’ll also find deserted beaches where seals laze, pre-historic sites and picturesque whitewashed villages. Across the water lies the island wilderness of Jura, whose scenery is dominated by the mountain peaks, known as the Paps of Jura. If you’d like to island-hop a bit more, take the optional excursion to Colonsay, famous for its varied plant and birdlife.
