About

Opened in October 2014, the new bunkhouse is the first business venture by the Isle of Rum Community Trust. 

The Isle of Rum is part of the small isles and the community run village of Kinloch is situated next to the Rum National Nature Reserve. The reserve offers a variety of wildlife such as Sea Eagles, Golden Eagles, Otters, Red Deer, Highland Cows and the Rum Highland Pony. 

As you arrive on the ferry, you will notice the hill of Hallival towering over the village (if it’s not too cloudy!). This is the start of the Rum Cullin, a highly regarded ridge walk that includes the corbets of Askival and Ainshval. There are also plenty of other hills around the island, all with their own unique beauty and levels of difficulty. 

The rocks of the Rum Cullin are the remnant of a magma chamber that originated around 63 Million Years ago when the Atlantic was beginning to open! The most fascinating rocks are Peridotite and Troctolite, both of which form what is known as a layered intrusion that has mesmerised geologists for over 100 years. Geological research is still booming on the island and in the last few years, international collaboration has been the main priority in uncovering the many mysteries the rocks still hold. 

Although the village has a small population (roughly 28 people), there are various services provided such as a general store, tea shop, craft shops, bike hire, fishing hire, luggage service, ranger service and of course the tours around Kinloch Castle!
