Covid Update March 2021

Bunkhouse

Following the Scottish Government update on the 16th March 2021, we have taken the decision to offer the Bunkhouse on an exclusive use basis only for the foreseeable future.

A flat-rate nightly charge for the exclusive use of the building will therefore be implemented along with a 2-night minimum stay. These rates are indicative of Scottish Government rules on household mixing and will be charged as follows;

  • 26th April – 1st June: One household bubble, or a maximum of 4 individuals from 2 households = £150/night
  • 1st June – Onwards: One household, or a maximum of 6 individuals from 3 households = £200/night

We will continually monitor the situation and regret we cannot operate as normal. We will update the website with any changes following the Scottish Government update at the end of June 2021. However, we envisage that the Bunkhouse will most likely continue to operate on an exclusive use basis only until next year. With that in mind, we will currently only accept bookings of this kind.

We apologise that we cannot offer the usual accommodation, however with the current and foreseeable restrictions this is neither viable nor possible for the Bunkhouse to offer.

Camping Cabins:

From the 26th April, the two Camping Cabins will be open. Each Cabin will have a 2-night minimum stay, charged at £40/night. The cabins can sleep up to 4 individuals.

Please follow the same rules as the Bunkhouse on household mixing.

Campsite:

The campsite will be open from the 26th April.

Moorings:

 

The moorings will be operational from 26th April. Please follow guidance on website for payment options.

 

Welcome to Rum Bunkhouse!

We offer excellent & affordable accommodation on the Isle of Rum. Whether you are coming to hill walk, cycle, spot the wildlife or just chill out, we offer a great base for your adventures.

With amazing views of Loch Scresort in our modern facility (completed October 2014), we cater for all types of guests.

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!
