Join our 2024 Coastal Survival Expedition on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. No experience necessary. This weekend is not a test of endurance, it’s an opportunity for everyone to learn, and practice essential coastal survival techniques. Rum is renowned for its sheer beauty and diverse collection of wildlife. From its resident Deer population to soaring eagles and the majestic Whales and sharks who roam the seas around this little Gem of an island. The Island is steeped in history and on our expedition we will see some of the oldest human settlements in Scotland.
Our first 2 nights are spent under canvas (camping) along the shores of the Sea loch, in the heart of the village. On Sunday evening we are staying in the Rum bunk house, with all the wonderful luxury’s you’d expect from a modern Bunkhouse.
