On a recent visit to Scotland we sailed over to the Isle of Rum. Here are some of the tales we heard about the island’s most intriguing resident…
In his late teens, George Bullough was caught in bed with his father’s new young wife and was banished to the family’s 221 ft yacht and sent around the world on a 5-year voyage with 40 staff. (19th Century punishment?)
When his father passed away unexpectedly, George cut his trip short and returned to London to discover he had inherited his father’s vast fortune.
