Isle of Rum: Landing / Camping Notice

Thu 23 May 2019

Isle of Rum Red Deer Project

From now until the end of June researchers are trying to tag all the deer calves born in the study area, which stretches from just West of Kilmory Bay to just East of Shamhnan Insir Bay.  If landing or camping on this bit of coastline, it would be very helpful if kayakers kept a low profile and tried not disturb the deer, which are used to grazing the coastal greens.  If the deer are disturbed inland and uphill this makes it harder to find their calves.'
