I've been going to Calgary bay for years, and it remains the best beach I have ever been to, including the amalfi Coast, Turkey, Colombia, and Florida. It is hard to find such perfect white sand and azure waters anywhere else in the world, and when combined with the mull scenery and general solitude (on a busy day there might... More

What a completely gorgeous beach! Here, on a glorious sunny day towards the end of August, there must have been only 50 people on the whole beach and it felt empty. Scottish schools have gone back already which might contribute to the peace and quiet. The sand is whitish and beautiful, the beach and the short walk down to it... More

You can park very close to the beach however there is limited parking. You can also park near Calgary Arts and walk down - excellent tearooms there. Nice walk also with sculptures. The beach itself is beautiful - plenty of space clean lovely sea - walk with great views.

We boarded the local service bus in Tobermory and as we are Scottish we could use our bus pass for free, passing thru little villages and hamlets we saw a good bit of the islanders lifestyle and the scenery was amazing. Calagary Bay was lovely, unspoiled with a river and freedom camping, near to public toilets. The. Us just had... More

Calgary Bay must have one of the best beaches in the UK and it's totally unspoilt. It is very clean and there is a chance to see some wildlife. It can get busy in school holidays but that isn't a problem as there is plenty of space.

Calgary is just one of the many beautiful beaches on Mull, it's about 30 minutes drive from Tobermory. There is a large grassy area, with a car park at one end a small campsite at the other. The grass turns into low dunes that lead down to a beach with soft silver sand. The headlands curve gently out to sea... More

Fantastic place to camp with young kids, set your tent up and let them off the hook to play in the river and on the beach. There are a few picnic tables and metal BBQ frames provided but be prepared to be woken early as the local sheep munch the grass round you tent. There is a toilet but it's... More

This is a stunning beach. Sand is white and crystal clear water. Beach is very clean and despite being busy it didn't feel crowded. There was plenty space to sit. Sat on beach from late morning till 2100 and loved every minute of it. Got the BBQ out in the evening and ate there. There is a small shop selling... More
