Difficulty
the west coast of Jura or the round of the Paps are only for fit, experienced walkers and competent navigators; day walks on Islay and Colonsay are more accessible but demanding in terms of terrain and distances, only for well-equipped walkers able to navigate.

Must See:
5-day trek along the west coast of Jura; the round of the Paps of Jura; dramatic coastal landscapes garlanded; magnificent white sandy beaches; Atlantic-battered cliffs.
