Stay: Jura Lodge

Isle of Jura, Scotland
10.06.2010 | by: Meghan

The Isle of Jura, situated off the western coast of Scotland, is known for a small variety of reasons: being notoriously difficult to reach; Scotch; red deer-to-person ratio (5,500 to 200); and for being the place where George Orwell wrote 1984. Jura Lodge, the former head distillery house, celebrates them all, especially the whiskey part, with over-the-top interiors by French designer Bambi Sloane, who forgoes expected Scottish cliches for a gutsy, vintage-fueled interior that’s somehow both eclectic and restrained. It’s now on my short list of interiors I’d like to live in.

The price is not for everyone (almost $4,000/night for the entire lodge), but if you’re determined to go, keep an eye on the blog for pretty decent discounts. Or ring up your rich uncle and start planning.
