Sail to Jura

Facilities for Boat Users

Jura’s 115 miles of coastline includes a wealth of sheltered bays and inlets which have, for centuries, provided boat users with ample opportunity to stop a while and admire the island up close.
Craighouse, in the shelter of Small Isles Bay on the island’s east coast, is the main hub of island life and provides a wide range of facilities for boat users. Its 16 new swing moorings offer safe harbour for boats of up to 15 tonnes and a stunning view of the Paps.
The moorings are in easy reach of the landing pontoon, installed for Easter and removed after the Jura Music Festival in September providing boat users with easy access to Craighouse.
Please note that the pontoons are for landing only. They are not suitable for yachts  tying alongside but can easily accomodate tenders and RIBs. The nightly charge is ?10 per mooring – paid at either Jura Stores or Jura Hotel. We currently operate on an honestly system and urge any users to make the requested payment as the project incurs high annual overheads and we wish to maintain the current  number of moorings (16)  for users benefit. Availabilty is on  a first come first served basis. Thanks in advance for your appreciation and co operation.
Both the moorings and pontoons have benefited from recent seabed clearance work.
As if the beautiful scenery wasn’t enough to entice you ashore, we have a wide range of facilities available in Craighouse. On a practical side these include:

  • public toilets
  • coin operated showers
  • laundry facilities
  • water, diesel and petrol
  • recycling bins
  • internet access – at Jura Service Point
  • the general store

And, to enhance your holiday further, we can offer:

  • local information
  • bike hire
  • picnic areas
  • access to the local bus service
  • meals at the Jura Hotel and the Antlers Bistro
  • heritage and Craft display/sales
  • a distillery with shop and tours
  • a bar offering a range of local whiskys
  • a Church of Scotland church with weekly services.
