About the memorial: Placed in the school grounds for the men of the parishes of Kilfinichen and Kilvickeon The Bunessan War Memorial, on the Ross of Mull, stands in a prominent position on a hillside behind the village primary school to the east of the village, on the north side of the B849. It commemorates the 41 residents of Bunessan, Kilfinichen and Kilvickeon who lost their lives serving their country during the Great War. Five additional names were added following the end of the Second World War. The memorial takes the form of a tall cairn of rough blocks of local stone, surmounted by a small grey granite Celtic cross with wheel-head and Celtic knots carved in relief on the face.
