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 because we fell in love with the place.
Repurposing our skills and experience in communication and exploring things that make us feel alive - roaming pathless coasts and hills; foraging and wild fermentation; making and creating with our hands and writing and drawing with pencils and paper; breathing and leaning into the wind and, well, making time for just being again - our aim is to create simple spaces for learning and sharing, to allow people to reconnect and recalibrate.
Always a work in progress, we are building and developing from 2019.
We are always interested in meeting and collaborating with people and we’d love to hear from you.

In April 2018 Gijsbert and Gijs from Liberté Tiny Houses drove from Amsterdam to Jura, bringing with them the tiny house work space 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. You can watch the film here:
This project was a labour of love for everyone involved, and we are immensely grateful for all the work that went into every stage of the design, build, film and delivery. It was a pleasure to work with you all and we look forward to our paths crossing again.
