Isle of Jura is missing

At least on Google Maps. I was looking at a vessel on Marine Traffic tonight and noticed a large clear area to the east of Islay. Jura is missing! Apparently it's a known glitch but I did get a bit of a start.

Jambo will be ragin'

Your bloody right I am!! All that good whisky missing. Google has a lot to answer for. So listen you and Dan must be going into a ghost port for year bugger.

Its a cunning ploy to keep up with Florida. Jura now has Disneyland Scotland-

Disnae hae a distillery
Disnae hae a pier
Disnae hae a beach....

Willk - I've just been to check and she is definitely still there. I can't see the distillery from here but there doesn't seem to be any local panic so presume it is fine! Depending on time and weather we may drive the bathtub over there later in the week. If I ground do you think I can sue google for a new prop?
