Isle of Rum 4×4 tour via Calmac ferry
Minch Adventures can provide 4×4 access to the Isle of Rum’s national nature reserve as part of our trips to the island. This service is unique thanks to the permission granted us by Scottish National Heritage and the first of its kind on the island. We provide unparalleled access to Rum, for up to 6 passengers.
Once disembarked on the shores of Rum you will be treated with a unique journey of around 3hrs by 4×4 up through Glen Kinloch and across the islands nature reserve which travels to its western side as part of a guided tour that lets you marvel at the landscape, with its mist-strewn Rum Cullin mountain range, these mountain crags were formed some 65 million years ago by the force of underwater volcanic eruptions, and whose uppermost peaks remained jutting upwards from the sea of glacial ice during the last Ice Age. Rum has a diverse wildlife, including members of Rum’s famous red deer population, golden eagles and wild ponies which are thought to have inhabited the Island for over a thousand years.
The tour will visit the unusual Greek styled Mausoleum the folly of John Bullough at Harris bay on the west side of Rum and also Kilmory Bay on the northeast side of the island with its unmatched outlook across the water to the Cullin of Skye. At the end of each trip we like to finish the trip down at Kinloch Harbour, here you can enjoy some lunch while overlooking the sea and while we enjoy our refreshments, we take the opportunity to mingle with the locals and get a real feel for life on the island.
Trips run April to June – August to October. Wednesday only. Price £75.00 PP, child £55.00 or POA for private hire.
