Bank holiday-Scotland wild camping adventure-The spectacular Isle of Jura
This gorgeously untamed island is one of the wildest places in Scotland. Located off the mainland’s west coast and known for its majestic soaring mountains, The Paps of Jura and remote stunning scenery.
Red Deer graze the mountains, majestic eagles patrol the skies, sea birds flock the sea cliffs while otters and seals bask on the rocky shores. This is a remote mountain adventure in true Scottish Wilderness.
