A fascinating island and one of Scotland's finest National Nature Reserves.
For many years, the "Forbidden Island" was closed off by the Bullough family. Used as a private sporting estate, landing on the island was by invitation only. Owned and managed by Scottish Natural Heritage since 1957, Rum offers mountains, coast, vistas to the Small Isles and a great visitor experience. Having visited the island on many occasions, this page depicts some of my experiences.
Home to a variety of birds and animals including sea eagles, deer, goats, otters, seals and many others, Rum is a very special island with a unique geological history.
