Whatever happened to the 'Rhouma'? - March 2012

11-03-2012

The 'Rhouma' - former Rum flit boat (c) Douglas King

Thank you to Douglas King who has sent us a photo of the former Rum flit boat the  'Rhouma'. He took this photo (right) in Oban in June last year and she had 'Rhouma Oban' painted on her stern. This flit boat was no longer needed on Rum with the advent of the new pier and roll-on roll-off vessel, the MV Loch Nevis. Visitors to Rum prior to the new pier being completed will remember the climbing aboard the 'Rhouma' before landing at the Old Pier. We are pleased to see her looking so good.

And here is the original 'Rhouma 2' (left) as owned by Sir George Bullough of Kinloch Castle. She is now called the M/Y 'Madiz' and is still going strong at over one hundred years of age.  For more information on her illustrious career click here.
