Only a short walk but interesting.

We parked on the grass verge at the w3w address. Be careful, though. It was wet and had been raining a lot; the verge was very soft and it wasn’t easy to find a spot that was secure.

We had a look at the standing stone first, which was impressive, before strolling to the beach at Tarbert Bay via the scant remains of an old chapel (and burial ground) dedicated to St Columba.

We then retraced our steps to follow a clear track leading north-west from close to our parking place. The track leads to a landing stage on a sea loch which is the other side of the island. This is the narrowest point of Jura. Not quite the  ultimate C2C…

It was a pleasant place to stop for a while and have a bite to eat. We were lucky with the weather (it was February) and it was an enjoyable little walk.
