Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm, from Easter until the end of October. There is always a local volunteer in attendance who can provide information on the history of the area and what is available in the archive and the library. There is a range of excellent locally produced booklets for sale. Tea and biscuits are available for visitors. Entry is free but a donation to the work of the centre is always appreciated. During the winter months the Centre is closed but can be opened on request. At present we are able to provide a research service using the material we have available in the Centre.
The bare facts and figures can often be expanded by making use of the wealth of knowledge within our community, especially among the older generation. who have a great tradition of oral history.
The cost for a basic three-hour search through the census records etc. is £25.00. Any further work is charged at £15.00 per hour.
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.
