Kilmory (Cill Mhóire in Gaelic) is a tiny village on the south coast of the Isle of Arran, located on the coastal road between Lagg and Kildonan. The village itself is no more than a few houses, a shop and a Post office. Southwest of the village are the Kilmory Cairns, a set of Neolithic chambered cairns in which skeletal remains and a flint knife were found. At the East end of the village is the Torylinn creamery, which produces Arran Dunlop, the silver medal winner in the British Cheese Awards 2002.
Many islanders visit Kilmory on a regular basis to take in the stunning natural beauty of the area, including the unspoilt and lengthy beach.
In early 2007, the village suffered a devastating loss of amenities, with the village shop, tearoom and public bar all closing. As of November 2007, the public bar has not reopened and the shop and tearoom remain up for sale. Kilmory villagers have pledged to work towards purchasing the shop, however, with a stated intention of relying on 100% public funding, reopening does not seem a likely prospect in the near future. It is believed that if a new operator for the Post Office is not found by the end of February, then the Post Office in Kilmory will close permanently.
