Jura Airfield

Jura Airfield comprises a short rough grass strip with no facilities located behind the sandy beach of Loch na Mile on the east coast of Jura in the Inner Hebrides. It is situated a half-mile (0.8 km) southwest of Knockrome and 2½ miles (4 km) north northeast of Craighouse. This airfield was built in the 1960s by the distillery architect, William Delmé-Evans (1920 - 2003), who designed and went on to manage the Isle of Jura Distillery in Craighouse. Delmé-Evans had his home in Northamptonshire, and the airfield allowed him to fly to and from Jura.

It extends to 400m / 1300 feet but receives little maintenance. The airfield is used occasionally by the air ambulance.
