Tour Scotland Video Walking Tour Isle Of Rum Inner Hebrides



Tour Scotland wee video of photographs of a small group walking tour to the Isle Of Rum, one of the Small Isles of the Inner Hebrides, Scotland. For much of the 20th century the name became Rhum, a spelling invented by the former owner, Sir George Bullough, because he did not relish the idea of having the title Laird of Rum. The main range of hills on Rùm are the Cuillin, usually referred to as the Rùm Cuillin, in order to distinguish them from the Cuillin of Skye. The Bullough mausoleum at Harris on Rùm has the Rùm Cullin in the distance. George Bullough, later Sir George, built Kinloch Castle in 1900 using sandstone quarried at Annan in Dumfries and Galloway. A Caledonian MacBrayne ferry, MV Lochnevis, links Rùm and the neighbouring Small Isles of Canna, Eigg and Muck, to the mainland port of Mallaig.
