Tuath, Camas

A modest inlet on the north coast of the Ross of Mull, in SW Mull, Camas Tuath (meaning 'North Bay') is located a half-mile (0.8 km) north of Loch Caol and 2½ miles (4 km) northwest of Bunessan. The inlet contains two small islands, the larger of which is called Eilean a' Chamais. A disused granite quarry on the eastern shore produced the pink granite which was used to build the Skerryvore Lighthouse. The stone was transferred from the quarry to a pier on Camas Tuath by a tramway. On the western side of the inlet, two rows of cottages which were built in the 1840s for workers at the granite quarry, were restored by the Iona Community as a retreat.
