About Craighouse

Craighouse pier, on the east coast of Jura, was formerly the destination of a ferry from the mainland, which no longer operates. The pier is still used by local fishermen and for recreational purposes. Off the pier there are eight 15 tonnes moorings, owned and maintained annually by Argyll and Bute Council. There is no charge for an overnight stay. Currently the maintenance is contracted to a local diver who is also a local fisherman who owns his own trawler which is moored in the bay. The Jura Development Agency are committed to ensuring that the moorings remain and are well maintained.

The separate original small harbour lies in the centre of the village (see 'More Photos').
