Stay at Calgary Cottage and you can ease into each day with a stroll to Calgary Beach, which is less than a mile from the door. There can be little more relaxing than feeling the sea breeze and the sand between your toes on one of Mull’s most magnificent beaches…
Calgary Cottage is a semi-detached Isle of Mull cottage sleeping six, in a superb rural setting, less than a mile from the beautiful white sandy bay of Calgary Beach. Calgary itself is a small collection of houses situated in one of the most scenic parts of the island, with beautiful deciduous woodland and a fantastic stretch of coastline. Travelling from the village of Dervaig (five miles from the cottage), you get some stunning views on the single track road as you wind your way around the coast, heading towards the cottage.
Guests can park at the roadside just beside the holiday cottage, open the gate and walk the short path to reach the front door. The welcoming hallway leads to the majority of the accommodation. Finished to a high standard with plenty of natural colours to suit the surroundings, guests will appreciate the homely feel of Calgary Cottage.
There is a well-furnished living room with comfortable seating and a wood burning stove, perfect for cosying up in front of after a day outdoors exploring. Guests will also enjoy the bright kitchen with a large feature window and access to the garden, as well as the cosy dining room seating six.
When it’s time for bed, there are three spacious bedrooms from which to choose. These include a double with an ensuite shower room and twin bedroom downstairs, with a large double bedroom with a separate bathroom upstairs. There’s also a handy family bathroom on the ground floor.
The substantial garden is delightful, with a variety of mature shrubs. There is a lawned area and a path leading across a small burn that runs through the garden to a separate area with outdoor seating, to help you make the most of the beautiful surrounds, with the countryside views to take in.
Less than a mile from the beach, guests can stop off at the Calgary tearoom and gallery on the way, before taking the woodland trail down to the sea. The village of Dervaig, has a well-stocked village shop and post office, as well as the oldest inn on the island (serving lunches and evening meals). Tobermory, the island capital, is a 30-minute drive away.
Calgary Cottage is a real gem in a stunning part of the island. It’s great for families wanting to enjoy the beach and for couples or friends wanting somewhere special to stay on a first visit.
