A newly refurbished popular local pub, restaurant & rooms in the heart of Bunessan with lovely westerly views over Loch na Lathaich

Bunessan Inn is a historic inn established over three centuries ago, located on the only route to Fionnphort, the departure point of the ferry to the Isle of Iona. The earliest record of the inn was in 1773 when Dr Samuel Johnson and James Boswell, on their way to the isle of Iona, stopped at the inn in search of whisky. The innkeeper, Lachlan McLean, informed them that the whisky supplies had run dry due to a funeral a few days before.

Bunessan Inn is under new ownership and following a refurbishment, reopened the bar and restaurant in June 2023. The newly furbished guest bedrooms are available to book from Easter 2024.

The Inn is the heart of the community of the village of Bunessan, where locals and visitors mingle in the well-stocked bar and over a meal in the restaurant.  On a summers evening it is the perfect setting for a westerly sunset over Loch na Lathaich. The village hosts the very popular annual Bunessan Show in August followed by a traditional ceilidh which is a wonderful get together for the Ross of Mull, the crofting community of Mull and visitors from afar.  The Ross of Mull Historical Centre is based on the edge of the village where many visitors come to find out about their forebears or more about the vibrant local history

Bunessan Inn is central to the attractions of the Ross of Mull, from the Weavers Mill at Ardalanish and Tormore Quarry to the miles of empty shell-sand beaches and a ferry trip to Iona or Staffa.  The whole area is a haven for rare wildlife and there are many excellent tour guides who can ensure you can have your best view of an otter or eagle.
