Argyll and Bute

An elongated settlement on the southeast coast of the island of Jura, Argyll and Bute, Craighouse is located 3 miles (5 km) north of the southern tip of the island. The village spreads around a bay and looks out onto the Small Isles of the Sound of Jura. The Small Isles Primary School is located at the north of the settlement, while the Isle of Jura Distillery makes a distinctive malt whisky at the southern end of the village. This ensures it is a popular stopping point for passing yachts. The Old Pier was the work of Thomas Telford (1757 - 1834), while a deep-water pier brings occasional visits by cruise ships.

Also located here are the Jura Hotel, Jura Hall, a community-owned shop and post office, which is the only shop on the island, and a community fire station.
