The District of Kilvickeon

The area of Kilvickeon is one of rugged beauty with stunning sea views. It has visible features and structures that belong to many different eras of history and prehistory, confirming that Kilvickeon has been inhabited since around 5000 BC. Loch Assapol hides the remains of a lake dwelling that dates from the prehistoric era. Scoor Cave has prehistoric cup markings and early Christian cross carvings. There is also a Bronze Age burial cairn, an Iron Age Dun and the ruined 13th century Kilvicheon Chapel and burial ground.  There are many tales of heroism and horror, of great loss and sacrifice and of war and survival. All of this is coupled with dramatic sea cliffs, spectacular geological formations, breathtaking views and a pristine coastline offering a diversity of wildlife and flora.

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.
