On the Scottish island of Mull, close to Tobermory, sits Calgary Castle, which has a colorful and rich history in addition to 27.9 acres of grounds and breathtaking coastline views.

Calgary, a city in Canada, actually got its name from this Hebridean castle, which is recorded as B. The legend holds that Colonel James MacLeod of the Canadian North West Mounted Police went to Canada and renamed Fort Brisebois in Alberta as Fort Calgary after visiting at Calgary Castle in 1876 and fell in love with the home’s daughter.

Due to the estate’s ownership by John Profumo’s brother Major Philip Profumo, the infamous man who was at the center of the 1963 sex and espionage scandal has also been connected to Calgary Castle.

The impressive stone structure, which dates to the mid-1700s, has angled turrets, a crenelated parapet, and gothic-style windows that provide views of the lovely isles of Coll and Tiree as well as the white sands of Calgary Bay on Mull.

The main castle has eight bedrooms, and there is also a separate two-bedroom apartment.

The grounds are 27.9 acres of gardens and woods with an amazing variety of trees.

Attention to those who enjoy spotting wildlife: Mull is home to dolphins, minke whales, basking sharks, golden and sea eagles, and more.

Calgary Castle is a fantastic, remote property that is rich in history, according to Malcolm Leslie, head of Strutt & Parker’s residential agency in Scotland. It provides the romanticism of island life and would make a perfect house, but it’s also a practical choice because of its close proximity to Tobermory.

Offers exceeding £695,000 can be made on this property via Strutt & Parker.
