Kilmory Bay is a stunning sandy beach on Rum's northern coastline, with an unmatched outlook across the water to the Cuillin of Skye. The walk is straightforward - along a good track almost all the way - but is long. The area is home to a very long term study into the behaviour of red deer.


Good landrover tracks throughout, except final boggy stretch to beach. The route is given Grade 2 purely on account of the length; it is suitable for mountain bikes.
