New Anthropod Janus Lands on the Isle of Jura
Posted 10th September 2021
After a 350-mile trip the new Anthropod 2 compartment Janus model has been installed on an estate on the Isle of Jura in the Scottish Hebrides.
Designed as temporary winter accommodation for two estate workers, the Janus features entrances at both ends and contains self-contained living accommodation with a communal kitchen and shower, loo and washbasin. The Janus is a specially modified Bleriot Plus model with double push-out sides to create more living space and features additional windows. Anticipating Scottish weather, the pod features a special drying cupboard for damp clothing. It is planned the pod will be used as glamping accommodation during the summer months.
The epic journey from North Yorkshire necessitated two ferry crossings from Kennacraig on the Kintyre peninsula to Port Ellen on Islay and then a drive to Port Askaig on the north of Islay, and finally another ferry to Feolin on Jura.
