The gorgeously untamed island of Jura is one of the wildest places in Scotland. Located off the mainland's west coast, the long and narrow island is known for its soaring mountains, delectable whisky, swirling whirlpool and local population of just 200 people (who are outnumbered hugely by over 5,000 wild deer).
Follow in the footsteps of George Orwell
One of the most famous writers of the 20th century once called Jura home. Orwell travelled here to find the peace and quiet he needed to complete his most famous work, 1984. From 1946 to 1948 he lived in Barnhill farmhouse, located at the northern end of the Island, which you can still hike out to today.
And enjoy a drop of dram good whisky!
