Thirty miles long but with only one village (Craighouse), one road and a
population of less than 200, JURA is a place to really get away from it all. George
Orwell wrote 1984 here. Jura's natural beauty is still unspoilt and outstanding.
There are barren hills, standing stones, the famous Paps, raised beaches and
wonderful wildlife: seals, otters, a varied bird population, wild goats and 6,000
red deer. It is an ideal place for hill-walking or just relaxing in peace and quiet.
Brown trout fishing (fly only) is available.
The hamlet of Inverlussa consists of the Old School House and six stone
cottages built for estate workers at the end of the 19th century. HEATHER
COTTAGE is an end cottage, 20 yards from the Lussa River and facing a safe
and sandy beach.
