The village of Dervaig, pronounced ‘dervig’ goes right back to Viking times, and indeed the name Dervaig means ‘good inlet’ in old Norse. The settlement itself really only goes back to about the time of the first church to be recorded here in the twelve hundreds.
The village can be reached from four directions, Calgary, Tobermory, Salen (‘the Glen Road’) and Torloisk (‘the hill road’). All routes are single track and charmingly twisty. The roads are a favourite choice for our Mull car rally held every October.
The main part of the village that you see today was planned and established by Alexander MacLean of Coll in 1799. This plan incorporates the 26 houses that you see down the main street.
The original church of Kilmore was built in 1755 but the present day church was not built until 1905. The church is well worth a visit for the stunning stained glass windows and is open everyday. Services are held on Sundays at 2 pm. READ MORE
