The Paps of Jura
The round of the Paps of Jura is a bona fide Scottish classic hillwalk. These three great cones of rock and scree give a challenging walk with views that are - on a clear day - unforgettable.
Very boggy approach, then steep mountain terrain with loose scree and boulders; no continuous path but paths do help on many sections.
Infrequent Jura bus service runs between Feolin Ferry and Ardlussa.
Parking area on north side of the Three Arch Bridge over the Corran River.
