Rum Bunkhouse in the Guardian...


Rum Bunkhouse is in the Guardian's '10 of the best community-run cottages, hostels and guesthouses in the UK' :)

A new airbnb Bell Tent on Croft 3!


Bell Tent

Come and stay in our bell tent on our off-grid croft, a semi-tamed corner of the wild Isle of Rum.

This is an off grid island dweller experience rather than a glamping holiday! Our bell tent is on a corner of our working croft where we keep free range poultry which can mean noisy mornings of cockerels crowing but also means a steady supply of delicious fresh eggs!

A perfect opportunity to travel light and experience life on this beautiful, wildlife rich isle. £30 per night, sleeps four with camping beds, sleeping bags, cooking area, fire pit and croft tours available. Full details on airbnb

Bring & Share Food Night: Takeaway Food! Friday 20 May, 2016


7pm onwards in the Village Hall

Takeaway Night with a twist. The twist being you bring it here rather than take it away! 

Bring and share your favourite takeaway food - pizza, Chinese or Indian cuisine, kebabs, fish and chips... if you usually queue up and take your food away in a carrier bag, then make it at home and bring it along to the village hall instead!

Cost £2 if bringing food, £5 if not

A fabulous Burns Supper on Rum this 25th of January.
