Kinloch Castle - Tour to the Isle of Rum
About this tour
Kinloch Castle is a late Victorian mansion located on the Isle of Rum one of the Small Isles off the West Coast of Scotland. It was built as a private residence for Sir George Bullough, a textile tycoon from Lancashire whose father bought Rum as his summer residence and shooting estate. Construction began in 1897, and was completed in 1900.
Built as a luxurious retreat the castle contains a multitude of fascinating artifacts and unique features. The castle and island are now owned by Scottish National Heritage - the castle being featured in the BBC programme 'Restoration' in 2003.
The ferry journey to Rum is one of the most scenic on the West Coast of Scotland with views of all the Small Isles, the Cuillin Hills on Skye and on many occasions a chance to view some of the local sea life. Dolphins, porpoises and the odd Minke whale abound, whilst gannets, kittiwakes and guillemots are often to be seen.
The Isle of Rum is the real jewel of Scotland's Inner Hebrides, diamond in shape and diamond by nature! With amazing wildlife, castles, beautiful beaches and stunning scenery, Rum has it all!
