Few places are wilder than the Scottish Isle of Jura. Orwell called it 'extremely un-get-at-able'. With a population of just under 200 people, Jura is one of the least densely populated islands of Scotland. Red deer roam the barren landscape, outnumbering humans almost 30 to 1. Rugged moorland and blanket bogs cover miles of the island, broken up by mountain streams, lochs and clumps of woodland. Three jagged quartzite mountains dominate the west - named for their breast-like shape, the Paps of Jura are tall enough to be seen from Northern Ireland.

Craighouse is the island's main settlement, where most of its people live. Sheltered on the east coast, at the southern end of Small Isles Bay, this is the island's social centre, home to the Jura Distillery and the Jura Hotel.

This design shows an idyllic Craighouse scene: fishing boats rocking in the bay's calm water, and white houses dotted along the shores. Seagulls jostle over the waves, and in the distance, the Paps of Jura sweep into the sky. Go on: fall in love with this beautiful scene next time you're washing the dishes!

Half Panama organic bleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. Machine wash at 40 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
