The Chatelaine's Scottish Castles

Kinloch Castle

Isle of Rum

Kinloch Castle

Overlooking Loch Scresort, a sheltered bay halfway up the east coast of the Isle of Rum where the ferry arrives, sits the reddish form of Kinloch Castle, an extravagant Edwardian dream, commissioned by wealthy industrialist George Bullough in 1897 and completed in 1900. The stone was shipped over from Annan in Dumfriesshire, and it is said that he paid the workmen extra to wear kilts.

Guided tours take place most days - phone to avoid disappointment. Telephone 01687 462 037.

Kinloch Castle Friends Association, founded in 1996, is a registered Scottish Charity which has over 100 members and produces a newsletter.
It is a membership organisation reliant on annual dues. The aim is to generate awareness, interest and funding to ensure that Kinloch Castle and its contents remain open for all visitors, so that what people enjoy and study today others will be able to appreciate and research tomorrow. The Association runs regular work parties to Kinloch Castle when it undertakes agreed renovation activities with Scottish Natural Heritage.

Kinloch means 'at the head of the loch'. The Bullough family mausoleum can also be visited if you want to walk over to it on the other side of the island.
