Calgary is a hamlet on the north west coast of Mull, in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. The hamlet is within the parish of Kilninian and Kilmore. It was the origin of the name of Fort Calgary in Canada, which became the city of Calgary, Alberta.GeographyCalgary is situated on the B8073 about 5mi west of Dervaig, and 12mi from the island's capital Tobermory. The settlement is a small community of houses scattered near a hotel and the Calgary Farmhouse.The hamlet is at the eastern end of Calgary Bay and is framed by low hills, partly wooded. A broad area of machair (a grassy meadow growing on calcareous sand) lies between the land and the beach. As the tide falls a river meanders across the sands. The beach is served by a small car parking area and public toilets. It is not an official campsite but there is a designated area for short stay wild camping in tents. Calgary Castle overlooks the bay.HistoryThe name comes from the Gaelic, Cala ghearraidh, meaning Beach of the meadow (pasture). "Cala" is the word specifically used for a hard, sandy beach suitable for landing a boat, which relates plausibly to the location. However, the museum on the Isle of Mull explains that kald and gart are similar Old Norse words, meaning "cold" and "garden", that were likely used when named by the Vikings who inhabited the Inner Hebrides. A small stone pier, originally built to allow "puffers" (small steam driven cargo boats) to deliver coal to the Mornish Estate, was also used to take sheep to and from grazing on the Treshnish Isles and gives a further possible reason for the name of the bay.Our United Kingdom (UK) vacation planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
