Kilmore Church

Mull | Dervaig | Church | ★★

[Kilmore Church]

The pencil-shaped spire of Kilmore Church glistens in the sun as you approach the village of Dervaig from the surrounding hillside. This handsome, whitewashed building seems out of place in such a remote settlement as this, and looks better than ever thanks to recent repairs. Perhaps surprisingly, the church only dates back to the early 1900s, designed in the image of an Irish watchtower, and is still used as the village parish church. It's equally lovely inside, with beautiful stained-glass windows and a brightly painted apse. Dervaig itself is also worth wandering around: an attractive village with a smart village shop at one end and the Bellachroy Hotel at the other. The latter is apparently Mull's oldest inn, serving first-rate food (and they know it!).
