Rum's new 'Mountain Man' - April 2013


Rum (c) Gav CoplandWe're pleased to welcome our newest residents and third set of crofters Gav and Laura Copland here to Rum. After getting stuck in to digging ditches and getting to know his new croft Gav is now ready to launch his Mountain Leader guided walks. Taking you  to the summits of Hallival, Askival and the further summits of the island, which command amazing views over the Small Isles, Skye and the mainland. All levels of experience can be catered for, from beginners to seasoned mountaineers.

Coming soon Gav also intends introducing 4x4 Safari trips over to Kilmory and Harris for a chance to see the Red Deer, Golden and White Tailed Eagles, the Rum ponies and the historical and geological sights of the island beyond the village. Special tours on a Wednesday and Saturday to fit between ferry sailings. For more info and to see what many visitors miss on a trip to Rum, search for Brocholme Croft on Facebook or email Gav at
