- Despite being the biggest of Scotland’s Small Isles, the Isle of Rum is the least populated island. The majority of its 25,850-hectare surface area lies uninhabited, with the entirety of its minor population of thirty-or-so people residing in the small village of Kinloch, which is located on its eastern shore. Despite its lack in residents, Rum remains a popular tourist destination, with plenty of places to stay and many things to do. Rum has been inhabited since the 8th millennium B.C and was home to the earliest known settlers of the whole of Scotland, so boasts a plethora of points of historical interest and ruins.
