Welcome Back!

It has been a lonely spring and summer on Jura but we are ready to receive guests once more. We have been working hard to ensure our business is following government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and we have in place a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. We have also been discussing with our community how we re-open our tourist industry safely and hope that our guests are mindful that our community is vulnerable and has limited medical resources.


Protect the Isle of Jura from COVID-19


  • Do not travel if you are feeling ill or have any symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Please ensure you have booked transport before travelling.

  • When travelling practise physical distancing.

  • Wash your hands regularly & thoroughly.

  • Practice physical distancing when you are here; respecting & protecting those around you and our community.

  • If you or a member of your party start to show COVID-19 symptoms please take the appropriate medical measures, inform us and return home immediately.


Extra Cleaning & Hygiene Procedures


Cleaning to a high standard has always been an important aspect of ensuring our guests enjoy their surroundings, but currently, it is critical that we take this very seriously. We are following protocols from the Association of Scotland’s Self-Caters; have carried out a risk assessment and are following a thorough cleaning checklist. These documents can be viewed at the property or emailed to you before your arrival. We will take extra care of high-touch surface areas and we will wash our linen and towels in accordance with the latest virus-control procedures. We will provide a sanitiser at the back door for guests to use each time the enter and exit the property. Anti-bacterial handwash will also be available at every sink and we will provide extra cleaning products for guests to use freely.


Additional Guest Responsibilities


We are asking our guests to help ensure we can carry out cleaning safely and ask the following:

  • On your final morning; open at least one window in each room before you leave the property.

  • Empty bins and recycling rubbish into main large bins outside.

  • Strip beds and place all linen and towels in wash baskets.

  • Make sure crockery, glasses, kitchen utensils etc are washed clean and put away.

  • Please wash you hands before and after you use our books, magazines and boardgames.



Living on an Island…


Booking your transport here may be the first problem you encounter, so please ensure you have a reservation before you travel. No need to book the Jura ferry, but Calmac are on a reduced capacity and space is at a premium! We are also asking guests to consider how they intend to eat for their duration of the trip. Our local community shop is amazing, but it will need plenty of notice if you are wanting to put an order through. Please see www.juracommunityshop.co.uk for further details. And again, please be mindful our medical services are limited; we welcome thoughtful and considerate behaviour.


We thank all our guests for reading this and welcome them back safely to Jura.
