New Direct Ferry Service Launched to Isle of Jura

Major developments to improve infrastructure at Craighouse on the Isle of Jura have just been completed and islanders are gearing up for the civic reception to mark the official launch of the new ferry service on Friday (August 1 July).

The new passenger service from Craighouse to Tayvallich on mainland Argyll is subsidised by Argyll and Bute Council and implemented by the Jura Initiative at the Edge group as well as the Jura Development Trust.

The crossing now provides a much faster link, taking 55 minutes rather than the 3œ hour journey via the Island of Islay.
