Rum is the largest of the Small Isles and a National Nature Reserve. Home to a great variety of animals and birds the wildlife here is of particular interest to scholars and researchers. The island is also most well known for the striking red sandstone Kinloch Castle. Built at the turn of the century by the wealthy industrialist Sir George Bullough, the castle is now open to visitors as an attraction and hostel accommodation with further plans for restoration and development.

Sail to Rum and the Small Isles from the port of Mallaig.
