We are now welcoming a restricted number of visitors to stay. Please enquire to check availability.
We recently completed work on refurbishing the annex of the old school here at Knockrome, with a handmade kitchen and a floor upcycled from Jura Whisky casks. We created self contained accommodation for one or two people – a twin or double room that can also accommodate a travel cot with a shower/wet room, and small meat-free kitchen area for preparing and eating breakfast and light meals. As well being there to give visiting musicians a place to retire to at the end of a day in the studio, we are also really pleased to be able to offer this to island visitors no matter what their interest.
The studio is housed in the old school at Knockrome, lying above Lowlandmans Bay, about 5 miles up the road from Craighouse. A kilometre off the public road at Knockrome. Sound of Jura’s ‘annex’ offers a totally secluded spot from which to enjoy the many flora and fauna of Jura, some delightful walking, running and cycling routes as well as the strands and sea at Corran, and Lowlandmans Bay.
The ‘annex’ guest accommodation is available year round and prices start at £50 per night, with muesli, fruit, bread, coffee and tea provided for your breakfast.
Please email us to book or find out about availability.
The ‘annex’ offers guests a compact kitchen and dining area, with kettle, toaster, fridge, induction hobs and microwave, while the bedroom seen here set up as a double, can also be configured as a twin, according to need.
Finally, just a few things to note
- The Annex is vegetarian – and that is reflected in what we offer for breakfast, and what we ask you bear in mind for any food you bring for storage and consumption on the premises
- The house is 1km off the tarmac road on a rough track – that’s solitude for you!
- As it comes up from time to time, we don’t accommodate dogs or other pets.
- There is no TV and as we’re 5 miles along the wee cooper strand from the BT exchange we can only offer a very, very basic internet connection.
