Rum Things to Do
Kinlock castle was built in 1900 and has no particular historical significance. It was built as a hunting "lodge" for a Victorian millionaire. It is huge and filled with technological curiosities of the time and a lot of dusty furniture and old deer heads. Each of the heads is dutifully marked with who shot it and when. The amazing part to me is our guide actually slept in the place alone one night. There is a hostel and staff rooms in the back but you wouldn't catch me staying in the old pile alone. It was a nice walk from the small harbor to the castle. Despite the efforts of the turn of the century hunters there are still a lot of deer roaming the island.
