Rum Cuillin - guided bike, hike, scramble & backpack !

The unique and wild Isle of Rum nestles in the Inner Hebrides. Rising directly from sea-level, the Rum Cuillin dominates the skyline. The main part of this ridge is around 10km, with some exciting scrambling guaranteed !

Rum's Cuillin ridge forms a natural horseshoe route, starting from Harris on the south-west of the island. We're biking to Harris and setting up a three-night camp there.
