This trip was planned to take in all the islands of the Inner Hebrides I had not visited on previous walking holidays, which explains why Skye, Mull, Iona and Colonsay do not feature. Jura is not included because, despite three attractive walks, I did not find a spot inspiring enough to write about. I’m sure there are many such spots on Jura – I just did not reach them. My itinerary was arranged thanks to the ferry services of Caledonian Macbrayne operating out of Oban and Mallaig and bus connections on Mull (to reach Ardnamurchan), Islay and Jura. The visit was over four weeks in August and September 2012.
