...is the highest peak of the Paps of Jura on the island of Jura. It is the highest peak on the island, standing at 785 metres, and is thereby a Corbett. The name is Gaelic and means "mountain of gold"


Most likely you will enter The Isle of Jura at Feolin Ferry (visit link).

If you take your car to the island, you can drive up to Ardfernal (N55 52.588 W5 53.923)and start your hike from there.

For those who travelling on foot the Jura Bus Service can cater for all your needs.The bus service runs from Monday to Saturday. For further information call Alex Dunnachie on +44 (0)1496 820314 or +44 (0)1496 820 221.

If you are a tough hiker you can choose the route which the runners of the annual Jura Fell Race (visit link) use.


During the period 1st July to 15th February (legal season) a deer cull takes place on the island. Some estates do start their season in mid July. Howver most do not usually start till mid August. This autorised cull takes place to control the population of stags, hinds and calves.
For your own safety it is important that you contact individual estates on which you wish to walk.
There is also a Hill Phone service which you should contact - 01496 820151.
