Jura coast-to-coast - Tarbert

Walking from coast to coast across Jura sounds like a very demanding excursion - but not on this straightforward walk that crosses the island at the narrows of Tarbert. A good track leads to the lovely shores of Loch Tarbert on the west coast, whilst the route is completed with a visit to Tarbert Bay on the east. The route was once used to haul boats across, avoiding the need to take on the fearsome Gulf of Corryvreckan.


Good tracks; can be wet on final approach to Tarbert Bay, grassy field to reach cemetery.

Public Transport

Infrequent Jura bus service runs between Feolin Ferry and Ardlussa.


Parking on grassy verge just south of the start of the track to Loch Tarbert. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
