We rolled off the CalMac ferry and straight onto the Jura ferry. Fares taken onboard and it takes 5 minutes. Just be there on time for the return as it runs very sharp

Shortest ever ferry ride, 5 minutes, goes out in all weathers it seems. We spoke to a ferryman who told us times, costs, etc. and we just turned up and paid on board. It only takes a few cars but it runs every hour.
