Welcome to the Ross of Mull Historical Centre

Ionad Eachdraidh an Rois Mhuilich

The Ross of Mull is an area so rich in history that there is still visible evidence of the lives of past generations on the beautiful coastlines and moorlands, wherever you walk. From ancient times to the sudden loss of a way of life in the 19th century due to famine, clearance and emigration, there are tales to be told and connections to be rediscovered.

The Ross of Mull Historical Centre (RoMHC) was established in 1997 to help make these connections for both the local communities and visitors to the area who are seeking information on the culture and family ties from the past. RoMHC is the hub for an archive about the people, the history and the natural environment of the Ross of Mull, gathered through research, projects and events. Visit us in Bunessan for a warm welcome and insight into a fascinating area of the Highlands of Scotland.

The Ross of Mull Historical Centre is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, SC030873

    The Community Garden in Bunessan

    Read More

The Ross of Mull is an extraordinary microcosm of all that draws visitors to the Hebridean Islands. The scenery, as you travel along the single-track road from the ferry at Craignure is breath-taking. You experience in the many walks in the area a true sense of wilderness; the secret bays with their beaches of silvery sand, the abundance of wildlife and the innumerable marks on the landscape of the lives of past generations and communities long gone. The Ross of Mull is a compelling place for anyone fascinated by history and the ancient way of life of the Gaelic people.
