The Isle of Jura, in Scotland’s Hebrides, is one of Europe’s last great wildernesses, battered by Atlantic storms, warmed by the Gulf Stream, with 200 people, 6000 deer and one road. Orwell came here to write 1984. Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty came here to burn a million pounds. We came here to reset our lives.
Repurposing our skills and experience in communication and exploring things that make us feel alive - cold water, foraging, wild fermentation, creating, fresh air, hills, caves and waterfalls - our aim is to create simple spaces for learning and sharing, to allow people to reconnect and recalibrate.
Building in 2021 for launch in 2022 Bothan Jura will have a renovated cotter's cottage, 2 simple off-grid huts and a shed space for retreat activites.
TINY BOUNDARIES - FILM
In April 2018 Gijsbert and Gijs from Liberté Tiny Houses drove from The Netherlands to Jura, bringing with them the tiny house studio they had built for us.
They came with two friends, Marnix and Kevin from KLCK Media, who made a film about the journey and of our own journey. They called it Tiny Boundaries.
