RoMHC worked on an access and interpretation project named "Discover the Ross", which was one of thirty one projects managed by the Nadair Trust and primarily funded by Heritage Lottery Fund. This involved the development of a major publication named Discover the Ross and several walking trails, each with its own illustrated guidebook, all of which explore deserted townships on the Ross of Mull. RoMHC organised a programme of events to promote awareness of the new publications, generating a lot of interest on the history of the area.
The Ross of Mull contains the remains of a large number of cleared crofting townships. The information found in the Centre helps make the history of these townships more accessible to the visitor by linking documentation data with the physical evidence on the ground. Initially a three year project, "Discover the Ross" was completed in August 2004, but the books are still very popular and are reprinted on a regular basis.

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.
