Discover the Ross Project

ROMHC worked on an access and interpretation project - Discover the Ross, one of thirty-one projects managed by Nadair Trust and primarily funded by Heritage Lottery Fund. This involved the development of several walking trails, all of which explore townships on the Ross of Mull. Each trail has its own illustrated guidebook, and a programme of events was organised to promote awareness of our work.

The Ross of Mull contains the remains of a large number of cleared crofting townships that are accessible to the visitor through the information made available in the centre; linking documentation data with the physical evidence on the ground. Initially a three year project, Discover the Ross was completed in August 2004.Find out more about the Discover the Ross publications and how to purchase them here>


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.
