Isle of Rum Campsite: Incredible views across the bay

General

  • Nearly-wild camping with stunning views across Loch Scresort
  • A 10-minute walk to the ferry port; five minutes to Kinloch Castle
  • Views across the bay; beaches, shop and café within walking distance

When it comes to the wild, the Isle of Rum is pretty high up there. Hugging the shore of Loch Scresort, the only village on the island of Rùm, this dog-friendly site rests on a pretty isle made up of a national nature reserve, making it a great choice to take a break in nature.

This is a car-free island, but there's no shortage of sublime beaches and hiking trails nearby, so you’ll have plenty of chances to spot the local wildlife or just lay back on site and look out over to Skye in the distance. Plus, 10 minutes’ walk from the ferry port and an hour and 25 minutes’ ferry from Mallaig, you can head over there to board the steam railway in the so-called ‘road to the isles’.

As there’s so much to occupy your time, facilities on site are pretty straightforward and include a shower block, toilets and a sink to keep you feeling refreshed. All the more time to sit back and take in the backdrop of splendid bay views all around.

You’ll certainly need a trusty store of snacks with so many nature trails nearby. Handily, there’s a small shop within 10 minutes’ walk. You can find a café here too if you're looking for a great spot to tuck into some food and admire the views.

    Great place, peaceful and amazing views! I would definitely go back.

    Disliked: 

    Midges! There were many, in the thousands. However there was chance to have dinner in the small shelter provided.

    Also I would have liked some bins somewhere near.
