Jura

Jura (Diùra) is a sparsely populated island in the Inner Hebrides. Well-known for being peaceful, George Orwell finished the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four while staying here.

Like a number of Hebridean islands, it is known for its whisky.

Jura also lies adjacent to the remarkable Gulf of Corryvreckan where the infamous whirlpool of the same name can make sea passage difficult and even dangerous.
