Graveyard and Township Survey

Suirbhidh Cladh agus Baile

RoMHC commenced a project in November 2009 to survey and record the four main burial grounds on The Ross of Mull, namely at Kilpatrick, Suie, Kilvickeon and Fionnphort.  It was completed in August 2010 and a booklet was produced for each site; these are for sale in the Centre. 

A significant survey of the township and farms in the Kilpatrick area produced some wonderful finds, spanning a period from early human occupation through to 19th Century building remains. A booklet for this survey is also available.

The project was funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund,  Your Heritage and Argyll and the Islands Leader programme.
 

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.
