Other Attractions

Calgary Bay

Calgary Bay, often appears in the various lists of top beaches of the world and it is very easy to see why. Its beautiful white sands are backed by the rare machair. The beach itself slopes gently into the clear sea.

To get there turn left out of my gate, it is a 20 minute drive. There is a small beach cabin selling drinks, ice creams etc. Above that is a lovely woodland sculpture walk to Calgary Cafe and Arts Centre, open day times.

Those who like a slightly longer walk can find their way to the deserted village of Inivea, above Calgary bay. This is one of the most 'complete' of Mull's cleared villages and it has become well known as the village from which an ancestor of David Tennant (best known as Dr Who) came. There is more information on Inivea here.

Calgary Bay

Eas Fors

This magnificent waterfall is just a few minutes drive from The Old Mill.

Its name gives a clear indication of the mixed Gaelic and Norse heritage of the area as Eas means waterfall in Gaelic, and Fors is the Norse for waterfall.
