Rum Diaries

So not updated this for a while and I will get round to updating it soon.......
So recently some friends from work and I headed out to Rum for three days. Managed to get really wet, really tired and really emotional.
Leaving from Mallaig we got the ferry across to Kinloch. To kill some time Craig, Lawrence and Neil went on a tour of Rum castle, which was the highlight of there three days. While on their tour the rest of us hung out at the community hall and made use of Rum Shop which is like Tesco except it has no trolleys, self checkouts, aisles or customers.
After Craig and Neil had the tour of their life we headed to Guidril Bothy for our first night. This bothy is in a gorgeous location and is well kept.
Due to the long days we didn't leave at the crack of dawn. However we did have a 16km day with lots of hills to take in so we started around 10am.

The weather wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either we were glad to reach the last bothy and didn't take long before we hit the sack.
Overnight there was lots of rain which made the river crossing more interesting. There was one which included a jump over a gorge, which was fun. We were all very soggy on the ferry but glad to be out of the rain.
