Work Parties

Official Work Parties have regularly visited the island twice a year to further the practical work of the Kinloch Castle Friends  Association. The dates of work parties is given in Newsletters and on the website. eNewsletters are produced at least twice a year and more if necessary. Copies of these may also be viewed through the website. 

Please contact Catherine Duckworth sec@kinlochcastlefriends.org to enquire about all work parties/visits.  While we expected to fit in more work parties , the reality is that the shortage of accommodation on Rum has meant we have found this difficult to plan. But of course, it all goes to show that more accommodation is needed on Rum! 

Accommodation is in the Rum Community bunkhouse.  Note too that in the bunkhouse there is one twin bedded room, the others being bunks. It is important that you book early to avoid disappointment.  We each make our own breakfasts and lunches, we share the cooking for the evening meals and therefore eat together. Some may prefer to stay at the B&B at Ivy Cottage with Fliss Fraser. See www.isleofrum.com for full information.  Some catering is provided in the Community Hall. The Rum shop is also extremely well stocked now. 

Many members have stayed at the Castle at other times than with work parties. Castle experiences will build up a picture of the castle at different times. I’d be delighted to add your voice.
