One of the Small Isles of the Inner Hebrides and home to a National Nature Reserve, we loved hearing all about Rúm.
Our island correspondent - Jed of Rum Bunkhouse - told us more about his stunning home isle:
"The freedom here is something that I try to appreciate and not take for granted. We have a National Nature Reserve on our doorstep and especially during the summer you can seize the day when the sun is out by getting out on the hill, cycling over to Kilmory or Harris; canoeing in the bay or getting the BBQ out.
"A walk up Coire Dubh to Hallival is my favourite. The moonscape-like rocks and beautiful views of the mainland and the Outer Hebrides is one of the privileges of living on the island; access to the island’s beauty is on our doorstep.
"We make good use of the village BBQ and have impromptu gatherings usually cooking steaks or handmade Venison burgers. However, my favourite dish is the Venison lasagne that is available at the local village café – Kim’s Kitchen.”
If you fancy visiting Rum once it is safe to resume travel, CalMac Ferries run regular sailings throughout the summer and winter months from Mallaig. ⠀
