In August 2016, Alexander Dunnachie , was our tour guide, what a wealth of knowledge concerning all things Jura. My wife and I were interested in the Genealogy of her family that grew up, married, had children on Jura before they immigrated to North Carolina. Alex was able to point out specific things that were pertinent to our understanding of... More

Alex's Jura bus tour was brilliant and we had a great afternoon. As well as explaining the history of the island (which included visits to the church to see old photos of life on Jura and the ancient gravestones), he was extremely knowledgable about the island as it is now and the community spirit which is evident. We have always... More

We were joining other folks for the tour with Alex but they cancelled. Alex is such a man of character he took only us. We spent an amazing 4+ hours with him seeing beautiful Jura Island from a local man who is rightfully proud of his home island. Alex went the extra mile in helping us attempt to locate my... More

With a wealth of knowledge about the Isle, Alex gave us a fantastic tour, even though we booked on short notice. He graciously squeezed us into his schedule and provided a wonderful overview of --and insight into-- Jura. With a delightful sense of humour and depth of understanding, we felt as though we gained an appreciation for the island that... More

What a wonderful afternoon! Alex is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the island. We spent almost four hours on the tour, every minute was full of interest. From the pier to the church exhibition, then on via graveyards, bays, ancient houses and settlements, past numerous herds of deer, also seals, herons, buzzards, Alex kept us informed and stopped frequently for...

Booked Alex after recommendation on the Jura hotel website. We were the only two but then met two lovely people from Adelaide South Australia, as Alex was showing us the evocative photo exhibition in the church, who joined us (and shared the cost - a bonus!). It helped that we had a glorious day (like in the pic of the... More

Alec took us on a short tour at very short notice today. It more than came up to our expectations and hopes, thanks to his huge knowledge and enthusiasm for the island, in every aspect of which he is involved. Even those bits we had already visited took on a new light and although we had already read a good... More

Alex and his Jura Bus provided us with the opportunity to visit both Islay & all the sights of Jura during our 2-day visit to the Isle of Jura in the Inner Hebrides off the western coast of Scotland. Alex tailored his tours to our needs and interest in the history of the islands...and in particular, the history of my... More

We definitely recommend a tour of Jura with Alec, we loved every aspect of tour from Church Tour, cemetery Tour and to Feolin and back to Jura Hotel. Even seen Ireland in the distance, and learned a lot regarding the new golf course that's underway on the island. Very interesting stories regarding residents past and present, and the lovely poem...
