Camas is a settlement made up of two rows of cottages, built in the 1840s for workers at a nearby granite quarry, situated on the shores of Camas Tuath on the Ross of Mull, a mile (1.5 km) north northeast of Ardfenaig and 2½ miles (4 km) northwest of Bunessan. The rows comprise three and four cottages and were restored by the Iona Community in 2006. These isolated cottages now provide basic accommodation for groups of up to 28 people with an emphasis on a simple, sustainable lifestyle and closeness to nature. An organic garden provides food, hot water is produced from solar panels, while electricity is supplied by a 6 kW wind turbine. A volunteer staff are resident during the summer months.
