Kilmory (Scottish Gaelic: Cill Mhoire) is a small village on the south coast of the Isle of Arran, located on the coastal road between Lagg and Kildonan. Kilmory is also the parish of the western side of the Isle of Arran.
Kilmory is situated on the southern coast of the Isle of Arran. Visitors to Kilmory are drawn by the natural environment of the area, including a long beach.
The village itself is no more than a few houses, a shop, a church, and a post office. At the East end of the village is the Torrylinn creamery, which produces Arran Dunlop, a silver medal winner in the British Cheese Awards 2002.
In early 2007, the village suffered a loss of amenities, with the village shop, tearoom and public bar all closing. The post office was relocated to the Public Hall and opens there from 10am to 3pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
As there is longer a local public bar, the village established a social club, the 1934 Club, based at the public hall. This opened in the spring of 2013. Full membership is open to residents and those who work in the district, associate membership is available to anyone sponsored by two existing members, and temporary membership is available to anyone wishing to avail themselves of the facilities.
