The estate

Ruantallain is a sporting estate of 20,000 acres lying coast to coast across the middle of the Isle of Jura with Loch Tarbert at its southern boundary. Largely spread across the inaccessible western coast of the island, the estate boasts some of the most beautiful and rugged terrain, much of which can only be reached via boat or on foot (see map page).

The Bury family bought the Estate in 1983 and have continued to run it as a sporting Estate with traditional deer stalking and brown trout fishing on the many hill lochs. 

Lindsay Bury has planted approximately 300,000 native trees on the Estate. The most mature wood can be seen from the anchorage where the boat is moored. and there are four further blocks, the most recent one being planted in the spring of 2020.
