The Experience

Spot red deer in the garden and eagles soaring overhead at this remote island retreat. This solid whitewashed farmhouse stands on the only road running along Jura’s east coast. Grassy fields and heather-covered hills stretch into the distance, while you can gaze across the Sound of Jura. Inside, glass doors and big windows frame the sublime views and fill the house with light. There’s a cosy sitting room with window seats inviting you to look seawards and a fire for nippy nights. You can buy supplies in the Craighouse shop a couple of miles away and cook in the bright, modern kitchen. Cheerful bedrooms are decorated in floral fabrics and overlook the garden or sea; simple bathrooms are stocked with local, malt whiskey-scented soaps! If you crave a dram of the real thing, you can hire bikes and cycle to the Jura distillery for a guided tour and a wee taste. Keen birdwatchers will be in heaven here, with greylag geese, oystercatchers and herons all resident in the surrounding fields. But if you prefer more active pursuits, you can go beachcombing along the coast, or conquer the Paps of Jura…

Yet another fantastic week with the family at Feolin Farm. The accommodation has everything you could need in idyllic surroundings. We love it.

Bryan, Glasgow

Great to be back on Jura at Feolin and sharing it with our friends. Swimming with the seals, wildlife boat tour, beachcombing and walks with the dogs. Islay Woolen Mill worth a visit. Hopefully be back next year”

Sue, Cheltenham

Great house for a family or friends trip - very comfortable, well equipped, clean and with lots of space around it. Thoroughly recommended.

Andrew, Edinburgh

So lovely to be back again – Jura is as special as ever and we will definitely be back.

Penny, Marlborough

Fantastic location and a wonderful house with excellent amenities

Derek, Dumfries

Great stay on Jura as usual! Swimming, cycling, walking, climbing and running were all enjoyed, along with the spotting of an Otter, a Sea Eagle and a slightly scary encounter with a goat! Can’t wait to come back again!

Richard, Macclesfield

We had such a fabulous week at Feolin Farmhouse. Fantastic walks from the door. Incredible wildlife including Golden Eagles, Short Eared Owls, Seals , Dolphins , Otters and the ubiquitous deer. Swallows were flitting in and out of the adjacent barn and only rained for one day! The cottage is an idyllic location with amazing views, a short stroll to s beach ( with seals) and only a short walk into Craighouse. The cottage was very clean and welcoming. Looking forward to visiting again in the future.

Kim, Peterborough

Lovely house and surroundings. Great walks, swims and wildlife. Great views of otters in Craighouse harbour, white-tailed eagle on big rock off beach and hen harriers on the moors north of Corran river bridge.

Richard, Liverpool

Once again another FANTASTIC stay in the superbly well appointed accommodation. On arrival the property was so clean and fresh smelling the amenities are everything you need for all terrain and weather. The dry room is a godsend with the second fridge freezer which allowed us to visit the shop only for essentials.

Elizabeth, Livingston

We stayed at Feolin for my 60th Birthday. The house was great for our extended family. Very cosy and with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms it was very flexible. Add in the magic of Jura and red deer grazing in the front garden- fantastic!. We are hopefully returning this summer (2021) if covid permits

  • Jura comes from the Norse words meaning Deer Island. Over 6,500 deer live on Jura, with the human population being about 300. There are over 100 species of birds, including Golden Eagles, as well as wild goats, seals, rabbits, hares, stoats and otters.
  • Jura is 29 miles long and 7 miles wide. It is virtually wild in the west, and is occupied by the three Paps of Jura. Known in Gaelic as The Mountain of Sound, The Mountain of Gold and The Sacred Mountain.
  • The novelist George Orwell stayed on the island at Barnhill. Orwell lived there intermittently from 1946 until January 1949. He completed his final novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, at Barnhill.
