“Stunning white sand!”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Beautiful white sandy beach with lovely clear water. It was a bit chilly when we were there but would be fabulous for a swim in the Summer.

“sandy bay”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

We were glad to break our journey around the Island at this delightful spot, with picnic facilities, and even a public toilet. Would love to see it when the sun shines too! It was pretty, even in the mist.

“Camping - Mull Rally Weekend”
Reviewed 7 March 2014 via mobile

We have stayed at Calgary Bay during the rally weekend for the last 2 years.

As im reviewing the area to stay during the rally weekend, its likely to not be representative of the area at other times of the year due to the large increase in visitors to the island during the rally weekend!

Last year we were a group of 6 people staying in two campervans and a tent. During each of our stays we arrived on the Thursday before the rally and pitched up. When arriving on the Thursday there was plenty of space to pitch up and not be crammed in. By Friday, the camping area was busy and space was limited - a few groups of people had arrived, some of which were noisy and boisterous at times. We didnt find this a problem as we were there for the rally and not for the peace and tranquillity of the island - although even with the groups, you do still get to appreciate the tranquillity of the island.

The position of the camping area is fantastic - the views are spectacular to wake up to! There are plenty of places for walking/walking dogs.

On the opposite side of the road to the camping area, there are male and female toilets. Although they are not immaculately clean or decorated, they are all that is needed for a more comfortle stay!

The camping area is perfect for anytime of the year but particularly if you want somewhere FREE to rest your head with the luxury of fantastic views, FREE toilets and a sense of freedom during the rally weekend.
