Set on the shore of one of Jura's prettiest bays, in beautiful gardens, Ruantallain Lodge has magnificent views across the Sound of Jura towards the Kintyre peninsular. The house is a perfect base for family and group holidays to walk, cycle and experience the natural wildness of the island. Situated 30 minutes from the village of Craighouse, the lodge is halfway up the island at it's narrowest point from east to west. Guests can swim, kayak and forage from the beach and nearby shorelines.

The space
The traditional wooden lodge offers simple, homely comfort with spectacular views.

There is an open plan living and dining room with a piano and open fire, a separate, spacious sitting room with views over the bay and a good selection of books, a fully equipped kitchen, separate utility room and a drying room for boots and wet clothes (and dog towels!).

The large adjacent wooden shed is open to all guests and contains a games room with full size snooker table looking out over the bay, a table tennis table and open plan work spaces that could be used for indoor group activities and games. There is also a toilet and wash basin with cold water only and an additional tv lounge.

Dogs are very welcome!

The village of Craighouse is a half hour drive south along Jura’s single track road, and has the Jura Hotel (and pub) with excellent food and drinks, The Antlers bistro (seasonal), a photography gallery, craft shop, as well as a well-stocked community shop and post office, doctor’s surgery and petrol pump.

Jura has two distilleries - the famous Jura single malt whisky distillery in Craighouse and the beautiful craft Lussa Gin Distillery in Ardlussa. A rum distillery is currently in development.

The whisky island of Islay is a 5 minute ferry ride away with 9 world class whisky distilleries, an RSPB reserve as well as a larger Co-Op supermarket and other shops in Bowmore and an indoor 25m swimming pool and gym.

There is a ferry that runs from Islay to the Isle of Colonsay twice weekly.
