Had a lovely short visit to Calgary Bay. Stunning scenery and very peaceful. Small car park and a wee tea shop. Tea shop was closed as it was Sunday. Quite a few folk around. Well worth a visit.

This is a truly beautiful beach with white sand and a sense of space. Follow the coast road for the most amazing views !

One of the hilights of my trip to Scotland. The drive from Tobermory to Calgary is an absolute must to see. As you're driving along this area, think about race cars on this road and just imagine the possibilities, because that is what happens once every year. They actually run a car rally through this area. The beach area is... More

What a stunning location even in cold weather. Both the adults and kids were wrapped up, quite windy. Disappointed the wee Icecream hut wasn't open even though it said it was meant to be!! Nothing there, missed opportunity, why are we Scots rubbish at this?! The place was mobbed, folk calling out for a coffee and icecream! 🍦☕️🏖

Stunning location - well worth a visit. Watch out for the single lane roads to get there though! Oh, and the wandering sheep!!

A fabulous beach with stunning white sand and abundant wildlife. Well worth visiting. We sat watched a flock of sandpipers running back and forth across the beach. There is also a small ice cream shop and ample parking too.

Went end of August. My brave husband had a dip in the sea which was freezing :-) Lots of birds - pipits, ringed plovers, cormorants etc. A beautiful tranquil spot, arrived fairly early and had the majority of the beach to ourselves.

One of the best beaches in Britain. Safe bathing and a large beach that didn't feel crowded even on a sunny August Bank Holiday. There is a small amount of free parking but get there early. A short walk from the beach is a lovely little art gallery and sculpture walk in the woods. There are public toilets at the... More
