What has happened to Jura? Or what has Google done to Jura?
The legendary Argyll island of Jura, of the raised beaches, the deer, the feral goats, the Corryvreckan, the three Paps of Jura, the Wizard of Oz, the single malt whisky, George Orwell and the Scottish Islands Peaks Race – has vanished.
And by the way, Jura has taken the rest of the chain with it so Scarbha and Lunga are missing as well. Little Colonsay is looking prety forlorn and Islay seems unprotected.
Note: We are indebted to Robert Wakeham for alerting us to this. And don’t first try Google Earth – as we unthinkingly did. Its an archived satellite map so Jura is still there – which is reassuring – and not.
