I'm from Canada, with the city of Calgary named after this spot on Mull, so I was on the lookout for it as we drove pur motorcycle at sunset en route to Tobermory - wow! It was too cool by then to spend time there, but it beckoned for a morning return.

Quiet rightly one of the nicest beaches in the UK, in such an isolated spot, but well worth the visit.

I went to Calgary Bay on a beautiful sunny and warm day, what more can you wish for when being on a holiday! The road on the left side of the bay is worth a walk on, stunning views. The bay itself is wonderful, the water is so clear and perfectly blue.

The beach is a gem, never over run and stunning changing with the light of the day and tides. Parking can be a bit challenging but worth it, we had great days spent exploring the beach and surrounding area.

Nice place to visit on a round trip of mull, has nice safe beach, popular with water sports enthusiasts. Unfortunately the weather was dull and miserable, with heavy rain. There is a small rough campsite at the end of the bay with some rather disgusting toilets, probably due to campers.

Beautiful horseshoe bay with white sandy beach. I love this place as do the kids. It's always sunny when I come here too, which just adds to it. Parking can be pretty terrible though, especially on sunny days.

We had our wedding photos taking here. The high hills we seen on our drive to Calgary Bay was amazing too. We spoke too very friendly people on the bay who came and congratulated us 😃. Thankfully we hit it luck with the weather for our photos 🌞, our daughter certainly enjoyed the bay. Would have had a proper relaxing... More

I was expecting something amazing but found this rather bog-standard compared to some island beaches I have visited (it isn't a patch on Lewis & Harris beaches, for example). Busy carpark.

Being Australian, we wouldn't go to Calgary to enjoy the beach. On both occasions we have visited over the last 2 years, its been freezing cold and very windy. By Scotish standards its a wide stretch of white sand, so quite impressive. What we enjoy about this location is the well kept small cemetery just across from the beach protected... More
