Ben Bhuidhe House (pronounced Ben Booey) is situated in 4 acres
of private grounds directly overlooking the stunning white sands of
Calgary Bay, thought by many to be one of the finest beaches in
Scotland. The house was completed in June 2010 and was designed as a family home, subtly blending modern yet
luxurious accommodation with traditional features to offer a bright,
well-equipped and comfortable base for your self-catering holiday.
This peaceful and beautiful corner of Mull offers a wide range of activities to suit all ages from exploring the coastline to hill walking, fishing, sailing, cycling, golf, pony trekking, boat and whale watching trips and of course the white sand of Calgary Beach is the perfect place for swimming, paddling and building fabulous sand castles. A designated “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”, wildlife abounds with otters, dolphins, seals, red deer, buzzards and eagles all within a stone’s throw of the bay.
The uninhabited Treshnish Islands are a paradise for bird watchers and in spring and early summer are home to literally thousands of puffins, cormorants, guillemots, razorbills and gannets to name but a few. The Island of Iona with its famous Abbey where St Columba landed in AD563 is also within striking distance as is Staffa and Fingal’s Cave where volcanic rock formations form extraordinary hexagonal columns similar to those found on the Giant’s Causeway.
There are lots of other attractions including castles, museums, craft centres, a whisky distillery, a narrow gauge railway, the world’s smallest professional theatre and of course the picturesque town of Tobermory (better known to some as Balamory)!
