Bunessan (Scottish Gaelic: Bun Easain)

 

A small village, Bunessan is however the largest village on the Ross of Mull peninsular.

 

A fishing village, Bunessan overlooks Loch na Làthaich and straddles the A849 Salen to Fionnphort road. The A849 descends into the village and climbs out of on the way to Fionnphort.

 

The village primary school serves the entire Ross of Mull.

 

Ardtun peninsular is located to the north of the village and is sparsely populated although more houses have been built here in recent years.

 

Located in the old Mill Keepers cottage is the Ross of Mull Historical Centre which details the history of the inhabitants of the Ross and is well worth a visit.

 

There are several shops as well as the Argyll Arms at Bunessan.

Public toilets are located opposite the Fire Station. It is worth noting that these are the only conveniences between Craignure and Fionnphort.

 

If you are exploring the Ross of Mull, Bunessan is an ideal base removing the need for driving long journeys from the north of the island.

 

Ardalanish Bay and Uisken are both only a short drive away, with Fionnphort and Iona both within easy reach.
