My destination was the remote and wonderful bothy nestling in Glengarrisdale Bay. Truly one of the jewels in the crown of Scottish Islands, the northwest coast of Jura is one of the few remaining places in the British Isles where a person can feel the remoteness and isolation of the true wilderness experience.
Jura has some fascinating caves – lots and lots of caves, many with live resident feral goats! A paradise for wildlife and birds, Jura has a large population of red deer and the west coast has wonderful raised shingle beaches, large areas that were originally at sea level but have been elevated as the underlying strata has lifted.
