Isle of Rum Community Trust

The Isle of Rum is the real jewel of Scotlandís Inner Hebrides, diamond in shape and diamond by nature. With amazing wildlife, an eccentric castle, walks to suit all levels, beautiful beaches and stunning scenery, our island has it all.

With just a short ferry journey from either Arisaig or Mallaig you can be here experiencing the Isle of Rum for yourself. You can come for a few hours between ferry stops; soak up the atmosphere of our village, visit Kinloch Castle, the craft shop and still have time for a bite to eat in the Village Hall teashop before departure.
Or, why not stay for longer and really get to the heart of our island. For accommodation, we have the Village Campsite and Camping Cabins, Ivy Cottage Guest House, Stalkers Bothy self-catering accommodation and Kinloch Hostel, run by Scottish Natural Heritage. Out in the far flung reaches of the island there are two mountain bothies.

In 1957 Rum was sold to the Nature Conservancy for £23 000 Ďto be used as a nature reserve in perpetuity and Kinloch Castle maintained as far as may be practicalí and became the National Nature Reserve that we know today. There was to be no more sheep grazing and the island was to be allowed to revert to its natural state.
