Jura Ferry on BBC Radio 4

Almost forgot about it, but luckily did remember and was able to find it as a ‘listen again’ feature: When I woke up yesterday morning the announcer mentioned that the new Jura ferry would make an appearance on the Today Programme on BBC Radio 4 during the next hour. Unfortunately I wasn't able to wait to listen to it live. If you missed it as well, here's a chance to listen to it again:

BBC Radio 4: James Shaw reports on the first direct ferry to the island of Jura from the mainland in 30 years (2:58 min clip)

The BBC (and many other news outlets) reported quite extensively about it, here's the report if you prefer to read rather than listen: BBC NEWS | Scotland | Ferry link returns to remote Jura. While the ferry has been running for a few weeks now it has only just been officially opened.

On a slightly related note the Sydney Morning Herald is writing about the Isle of Jura and in particular the Jura Lodge and the distillery, although they don't seem to have heard about the direct ferry just yet: A scotch on the rocks.
