Mull’s West coast

A day trip down the West coast of Mull

For our day trip we are going to take a drive along the coast from Calgary bay heading South to Knock.

Around every corner we encounter a new seascape and views out to the islands of Coll, Tiree, and the Treshnish islands. Keep a lookout for wildlife, its possible to see basking shark from the cliffs and eagle overhead.

Calgary

Calgary is our first stop,
visitors can enjoy a visit to the tearoom and art gallery, its situated at the top of the hill above the beach.

There is a woodland walk with sculptures and lots of places that children love to discover and explore.

there is so much to see and explore here but lets get back on the road.

Eas Fors waterfall

It is situated by the road on the Allt an Eas Fors (Eas Fors Burn)

The name is tautologous: eas is Gaelic for waterfall, and fors or foss is also Norse for waterfall,[2] so "Eas Fors waterfall" means "waterfall, waterfall, waterfall."

Ballygown Restaurant

Next stop are going to call in at Ballgown restaurant to make a reservation for dinner or maybe we will just stop and have lunch.

Lip na Cloiche
