The Jura Hotel sold to local estate owners

The Isle of Jura Hotel has been sold to the local Isle of Jura estate owners at Ardfin Estate where a 5-star hotel and golf course has recently been developed.

The Jura Hotel has a prominent position, in the village of Craighouse on Jura – the islands main settlement and hub of the community – with open sea views over the Small Isles Bay.

The hotel, which is adjacent to the island’s distillery, has been completely refurbished and modernised over the past 10 years and boasts 17 bedrooms; 2 bars; restaurant; lounge – plus a modern 5-bedroom house; and staff accommodation. The hotel also has an alfresco terrace and bar/café servery which overlooks the hotel’s camping/event field. It has its own biomass system and solar panel energy.

The Jura Hotel has been sold by Cath and Andy McCallum, and family, who after 11 years of owning and operating The Jura Hotel, will be remaining on the Isle of Jura, pursuing new ventures.

Willie MacDonald of Ardfin Estate commented on their future plans for The Jura Hotel, “Ardfin Estate are delighted to be the new owners of Jura Hotel and intend to continue the operation in the same vein as the previous owners and hopefully, if possible, build on the success that Andy and Cath McCallum have had in their 11 years of owning the Hotel.” 

Alistair Letham, Hotel + Leisure Consultant at Graham + Sibbald, who handled the sale commented, “The availability of The Jura Hotel for sale, almost unique in this idyllic island location, attracted interest from a wide range of potential buyers and hoteliers. The purchase by the local Ardfin Estate not only secures the future of The Jura Hotel – an essential element of this island’s community – but also offers excellent business growth opportunities when “marrying” The Jura Hotel with hotel and leisure/sporting facilities at Ardfin.”

The purchase/selling price is undisclosed, but Graham + Sibbald were inviting “Offers over £1,200,000” for The Jura Hotel, Isle of Jura.
