Kilchoan  Argyll

 

In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Kilchoan like this:

Kilchoan, a small harbour and a hamlet, with an inn and a public school, on the S coast of Ardnamurchan parish, Argyllshire. The harbour confronts the convergence of Loch Sunart and the Sound of Mull, 6 ¼ miles N by W of Tobermory, and 21 W by S of Salen; forms the principal point of communication between much of the mainland and Tobermory; and is occasionally the resort of craft bringing cattle from some of the western islands to the mainland.
