Jura & Islay
Jura is extraordinarily different to Islay, even though it is incredibly close – far more mountainous and wild, and far fewer people, about 200, and only one distillery. Two anchorages in particular stand out for their remoteness, West Loch Tarbert, a long and intricate loch on the west coast, and Bagh Gleann nam Muc, just off the Correyvreckan at the North West tip.
Islay is quite different from the other Hebridean islands, and not at all like the Highlands except in a few corners, having a character of its own being more rural, with more farmland, more whitewashed houses, and more notable for its shore birds than sea birds. The island is, of course, famous for its Scotch whisky associations, Islay, with its eight Islay single malts (Bruichladdich, Bowmore, Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Ardbeg, Caol Ila and Bunnahabhainn), all but one distilled on the coast, is a must for aficionados. It is often possible to visit one of these if Lizzie May visits the Sound of Islay.
