Located in the north west corner of Mull, Calgary Bay has one of the finest beaches in Scotland. The dunes here are home to varied flora and fauna behind the beach and the Friends of Calgary Bay provide guidance and information on such topics as wild camping, helping to protect the sensitive natural balance of the beach environment, whilst welcoming the many visitors that flock here.  This is one of the few beaches on Mull that are backed by shell sand dunes and machair, Gaelic for a low-lying, fertile plain.

    Our beach, at Calgary, is the place I go to enjoy a stroll through the sands with my dog.  She loves to investigate the smells found amongst the dunes and the rocks.  There are  flocks of oyster catchers and gulls on the shore to be chased off,  waves to crash through as she tries to find the seashells thrown into the water,  rabbits to chase after on the stretch of machair (which she never catches).  This is her idea of heaven.  And I like to stroll here with her,  searching for interesting flotsam and jetsam, my head full of nothing very much at all.  Even on the cold, wild and windy days, there is peace here.
