An extraordinary landscape of volcanic mountains, sweeping moorlands, and cliffs that lurch towards the sea, the diamond-shaped Isle of Rum is as beautiful as it is wild.
The largest of the Small Isles, Rum has been a National Nature Reserve since 1957 and holds many secrets beyond its rocky shores. From its soaring summits, where thousands of Manx shearwaters come to nest every summer, to its fascinating history that lingers in the topography of the land, Rum is quieter, wilder and more remote than some of its more famous counterparts.
On this 6-day guided walking holiday, explore Rum’s captivating coastline, rolling heathery moors and hidden sandy coves. Spend time helping to protect these captivating landscapes and the wildlife that lives here by supporting the local rangers with a beach clean and wildlife count. Each evening, relax in an exclusive-use bunkhouse nestled on the edge of the sand and enjoy delicious seasonal food, stunning views and lovely company.
Whether it’s the Rum ponies and their caramel-coloured manes blowing in a sea-stung breeze, or the breathtakingly dark skies, far from light pollution and studded with stars, this is a trip filled with moments that are sure to stay with you long after you’ve returned home.
