Rum Cuillin

Guided hillwalking and backpacking on the Isle of Rum

The unique and wild Isle of Rum nestles in the Inner Hebrides. Rising directly from sea-level, the Rum Cuillin dominates the skyline. The main part of this ridge is around 10km, with some exciting scrambling guaranteed !

Rum's Cuillin ridge forms a natural horseshoe route, starting from Harris on the south-west of the island. We're biking to Harris and setting up a three-night camp there, from where we'll aim up the rugged peaks on the island.
