Calgary, on the northwest coast of Mull, was once a thriving crofting community. It’s also, arguably, the location of the finest sandy bay on the island – a magnificent sweep of white sand and clear blue water nestled between two rocky headlands. In fact we had to keep pinching ourselves that we were on the west coast of Scotland and not on some Caribbean island a few thousand miles away………honestly, if it wasn’t for the need to still wear a fleece we would never have known the difference…..;0).
The main reason we wanted to visit Calgary was for the “Art In Nature” sculpture trail which leads through the wooded hills that belong to Calgary Farmhouse and down on to the beautiful white sandy beach of the bay. It didn’t disappoint, especially as entrance was free (apart from £1 for a map of the site) and afterwards we indulged in some sumptuous tea and cake in the farmhouse tea-room and gallery….:0).
