The legend of the Jura prophecy dates from the early 1700’s when it was said that the illustrious Campbell family had evicted a wise old seer blessed with the sight of a third eye – the ability to see the future, she prophesised that when the last member of the family left Jura they would be one eyed and his belongings would be carried in a cart drawn by a white horse. In 1938 Charles Campbell left the island. Blind in one eye from the Great war and having fallen on bad times, his goods were carried in a cart drawn by a single white horse. He was the last Campbell to leave the Island and the last laird of Jura. The prophecy was fulfilled and over time the story became legend.
