Dogs welcome but not in house. Comfortable kennel provided.
Feolin Farm house is a charming, recently renovated, traditional Scottish farmhouse with its original farm buildings. It occupies a stunning secluded position raised above the eastern shore of the Isle of Jura overlooking the outlying islets of Small Isles Bay and is the perfect base for exploring this most beautiful of Hebridean islands. The interior has been extensively modernized but the house has lost none of it's traditional charm. There are four good bedrooms, a modern fitted kitchen with a breakfast bar, a separate dining room and a cosy but spacious sitting room which has fine sea views, a working open fireplace and french doors to the garden. Feolin Farm is a truly luxurious holiday retreat.
The location is outstanding with the seashore a couple of minutes walk over the fields and across a small single metalled track that is the island's only road along the east coast. The village of Craighouse is only a mile away, where you will find a well stocked shop, a welcoming hotel and the distillery, where the world famous Isle of Jura malt whisky is made. Behind the house is nothing but thousands of acres of grass and heather covered hill over which you are free to roam, and, if you are adventurous, and fit enough, you can climb to the peaks of the famous mountains known as the Paps of Jura.
Jura (meaning 'island of deer') is particularly famous for its red deer which will always be seen on the hill but, at certain times of the year, will graze close to the house. Jura is home to an abundance of wild life from the black grouse to the otter. The garden is fully enclosed and laid mostly to lawn making it ideal for children. From the sitting room you can gaze over the sea to the Isle of Arran and the Mull of Kintyre on the mainland.
River, loch and sea fishing may be organized through the Forest Estate Manager by prior arrangement.
