Askival is the highest mountain on the island of Rùm, in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. It is located 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of Kinloch, the main village on the island. It is part of the Rùm Cuillin, a rocky range of hills in the southern end of Rùm. It is often climbed as part of a full traverse of the ridge.
