Calgary Bay Cottage, as the name suggests, is situated on the edge of Calgary bay. This enviable position, in the north west corner of the island is highly sort after by regular visitors to Mull. The sweeping white sands of Calgary bay and dramatic west coast scenery, coupled with the relatively easy access to Tobermory (a 30 minute drive from the house), makes this a very appealing location for a holiday.
Nearest village: Dervaig (5 miles)
Drive to ferry terminal at Craignure: 1 hour

Things to Do
A walk along the shoreline in front of the dunes on a daily basis, is a must, to take in the beautiful scenery. There is a footpath at the far end of the bay (north side) which leads out past an old pier to Rubhna nan Oirean and can be extended to Caliach Point and beyond for those who enjoy a longer trek.
Calgary itself is a small settlement with a scattering of residential homes and holiday houses, as well as a gallery and tearoom at 'Calgary Arts', on the opposite side of the bay. A great place to buy some local artwork and stop for lunch, or coffee and cake. There are a couple of restaurants in the area: Am Birlinn at Penmore and Ballgown on the west coast. Dervaig, the nearest village is just five miles away, and has a great village shop and public house (The Bellachroy). There are regular producer's markets on throughout the summer season too at the village hall too.
Guests staying in this area often make use of the boat trips departing from Ulva Ferry or indeed Tobermory. Book a trip to see the impressive basalt columns of Staffa and see the puffins, or take a trip out to the Treshnish islands and see if you can spot a passing seal, porpoise or basking shark on the way. There are some great wildlife tours available on the island too, as well as local guides offering photography courses and walking tours.
