Argyll and Bute

Located on the Ross of Mull in the southwest corner of the island of Mull, Argyll and Bute, Bunessan lies at the head of the sea loch of Loch na Lathaich, a half-mile (1 km) south of the settlement of Ardtun. It lies on the route to Fionnphort, the ferry terminal for Iona, and has an anchorage, lobster fishing and a boatyard. Bunessan Primary School lies to the northeast of the village, but its secondary department closed in 1968, with just six pupils at the time. Bunessan gave is name to the traditional Gaelic folk-tune used for the hymns 'Child in the Manger' (1888) and 'Morning has Broken' (1931). The former is a translation of Leanabh an àigh by Mary MacDonald (1789- 1872).
