Bizzare Rum

This mausoleum, lying in a far off corner of Rum is, to me, the weirdest sight in the Hebrides. To see it involves a long hike across the island from Loch Scresort. But it is a hike well worth making for the views across the interior of Rum and to the surrounding isles. 

The castle at Scresort is itself an oddity, but this Grecian Temple standing atop a field of lazybeds at Harris Bay is Twilight Zone surreal. The small white patch on the hillside (to the left of the temple) is all that remains of the Bullough's original marble-tiled grave, blown to pieces after someone compared it to a public toilet.
