Bunessan is a small village located on the Ross of Mull, on the south west corner of the Island of Mull.
Renowned for the lobsters caught offshore in Loch Scridain, the village has a number of tourist facilities including a general store and a post office, and boasts the only pub in the area. It is also home to the Ross of Mull Historical Centre. Sited at Millbrae Cottage, next to the ruins of the old corn mill, the ROMHC was set up in response to world-wide demand from those seeking their roots in the Ross of Mull. This ancient fishing village is easily accessible as it lies on the route linking the ferry terminals at Craignure and Fionnphort.
Bunessan is celebrated in the official name of the melody popularly known as 'Morning Has Broken'. The tune was originally a Gaelic folk tune and had words added to it in Gaelic in the 19th century by a native of the Ross, Mary MacDonald who lived close to the village.
