Isle of Rum Community Trust Ranger ServiceUnfortunately, there is currently no Ranger Service on Rum. However, please feel welcome to ask for advice at the Bunkhouse or the shop and post office
The island offers excellent walking opportunities and is one of the best places to be if you’re into wildlife. Whatever your interests, there’s something here for you. All you need to bring is a sense of adventure and an enthusiasm for one of Scotland’s most beautiful islands.
Please come prepared as Rum is a rough and ready sort of place, but all guided walks are on fairly level roads and are considered good. However, please bring walking shoes or boots, warm clothing, waterproofs and a midge-hood! Tours are subject to confirmation and may be cancelled if the weather is bad, so please check the notice boards around the village, or confirm with the ranger Please look here to see the Scottish Outdoor Access Code which has information about your rights and responsibilities when out in the countryside.
