Over the Sea to Jura

The Big Ferry

The car ferry link between the mainland and Jura goes from Kennacraig and via the Isle of Islay. Calmac runs a ferry several times a day to Islay, to either Port Askaig in the north or Port Ellen in the south. Ferries to Port Askaig are more convenient for Jura and the crossing is half an hour shorter (around two hours).

The Wee Ferry

From Port Askaig, the Jura Ferry crosses to Jura approximately every hour. It is not bookable but keeps going back and forth until everyone who arrived on time is across.

Buy tickets on the boat or online here.

Particularly early crossings, Sunday morning crossings and those after 6.30pm need to be booked - call 01496 840681.
