Drive off the main ferry from Islay, and the lads waved us straight onto the smaller ferry to Jura. Quick, no hassle, and great fun too! A proper service, with a family-like atmosphere. It was a short trip, but big on service - thanks guys!

Was a quick journey, and good value for money (£22ish for car and 3 adult passengers). Sign on Jura letting you know the status of the ferry.

Nipped over to Jura for a whiskey tour and the 5 minute trip over and back was just as much part of the experience as the distillery visit and so much more than just functional transport. Ferry can take 4 vehicles and a few foot...More

Really helpful crew prepared to hold the boat for us when the Islay ferry was severely delayed from Kennacraig due to a road traffic accident.
