Buzzfeed "Subterranean tunnels on Rum"

24-05-2017

If you have seen the Buzzfeed listing "19 Life-changing Wild Adventures Everyone Must Try in Scotland", Rum is listed at No.5 : "Subterranean tunnels on Rum"

Please be aware, that Rum's Community Ranger is NOT able to tell you "safe spots to explore" - Rum is very wild, and the weather can be unforgiving. Even spots considered safe, can become unsafe very quickly if bad weather sets in. 

The Coastguard helicopter has come out to Rum to rescue hillwalkers twice already this year.

Caves Bay is very beautiful and accessible by a rough trail overland, but the majority of the caves around Rum's coastline are only accessible by kayak.

If you want to visit any of the caves, you must do so at your own risk. Rum's Community Ranger, and the Community itself, cannot be held responsible for accidents or injuries.

Here is the link to the Buzzfeed listing. 

Be safe!
