Things to Do
Calgary Bay is one of the best known beaches on the island. It is a beautiful spot and has the advantage of being able to park at either end of the bay and a nice gallery and tearoom close by. There are a handful of other superb beaches and stretches of coastline to explore in this area too, for those who are keen to get off the beaten track. Port na Ba, Langamull, Black Beach, and the coast around Treshnish offer some hidden delights and good walks, and there is some lovely woodland at Torloisk and Quinish too.
The Bellachroy offers pub lunches and evening meals and the village shop is well equipped. The Byre Heritage centre is also worth a visit with its gift shop and cafe and interesting films and displays about Mull, its history and wildlife. There are some other really great options for good food at Am Birlinn and Ballygown. For wildlife and boat trips, Tobermory and Ulva Ferry are not far away where whale watching trips and boat tours depart from.
The west coast of the island is beautiful and the gardens at Lip na Cloiche are well worth a visit. Loch na Keal is a thirty minute drive from Cragside where sea eagles, otters and other marine mammals are often seen, so remember to pack your binoculars.
