For such a tiny com­mu­nity Fionnphort is al­ways busy – with vis­i­tors head­ing for Iona and as home to a busy fishing fleet; crabs and lob­sters landed here are ex­ported to Europe. Check out:

The stun­ning views over to Iona; the beaches around Fid­den and Er­raid – the is­land fea­tured in RL Steven­son’s novel Kid­napped, (he moved the lo­ca­tion slightly). There is a gen­eral store, shop and Post Of­fice, restau­rant and café all in the vil­lage and a wide va­ri­ety of ac­com­mo­da­tion in and around. The Columba Cen­tre is home to a gallery and shop. The jour­ney: The A849 brings you from Craignure, through Pen­nyghael and Bunes­san, home of the Ross of Mull His­tor­i­cal Cen­tre. Hop­scotch: Tober­mory for Kil­choan - ex­plore Ard­na­mur­chan; Fish­nish to Locha­line – take the long way to Fort Wil­liam or Oban.
