Camping Cabins Arrive - March 2012


Camping Cabins Arrive (c) Vikki TrelferFriday 30th March saw the arrival of the Isle of Rum Community Trust’s new camping cabins.  The two ‘pods’ are now a part of  Kinloch Village Campsite and are located at the east end of the campsite, nearer to the Old Pier and it is hoped that they will earn a valuable income for IRCT to invest in other community projects.

The cabins are beautifully basic.  With mattresses to sleep up to four people and ample space for kit, they will provide a welcome retreat from the Rum midges later in the season!  They also have solar lighting and spectacular views out over Loch Scresort.

Development Officer, Vikki Trelfer who is in charge of this project says  “This is a really exciting project for the community on Rum; we’re now able to offer visitors a greater variety of accommodation. This wouldn’t have been possible without support from the LEADER programme and Highlands & Islands Enterprise, and is a first step towards greater economic sustainability for the island.”
