Absolutely awesome . Tayvallich to Craig house in 45 minutes . Biblical waves made the journey to the music festival even more unforgettable . Friendly captain and crew . If you get the chance have a go

I have used the Jura Passenger Ferry six times now and have experienced it in all weather conditions. Defo my preferred way to get to Jura and Nicol does a great job, ensuring we all arrive safely and on time. See you next year!

Travelling on our bikes crossing Argyll, popped all 3 on the back on the ferry with a phone call ahead. Magical journey past lighthouses & islands to craighouse. Well run service but check timetable - not every day

The skipper Nicol is a friendly soul but also a gifted man with the boat. We felt very safe riding with him. He pointed out the oldest castle in Scotland and a lighthouse built in 1830.

Group of 8 crossing and had never been to Jura before so we were slightly nervous on the first trip as it was very wet and windy. Cross took no more than 50 mins and although rough was fine. On the way back the boat...More

Fast, scenic and direct to Craighouse! The other advantage is you get to see Tayvallich, which is beautiful.
