A robust 13th century Scottish castle hides an exquisite example of a Georgian dwelling within its curtain wall. Sleeping up to 10 guests, Mingary Castle offers both Exclusive use stays and bed and breakfast accommodation. The long abandoned ruin of Mingary castle has been painstakingly renovated by a team of highly skilled craftsmen, who have made good the crumbling stonework, long lost roofs and floors buried deep in undergrowth, so once again Mingary can provide its guests with the finest of Highland hospitality. Sitting on the coastal fringes of the 12,000 hectare Ardnamurchan Estate, Mingary is at the heart of some of the finest countryside in the UK, its mountains, moorland and seawaters are teaming with rare and beautiful flora and fauna.
Unfortunately the castle has yet to finalise their Christmas package. However I have enclosed a copy of last year's package to give you a flavour of what is offered.
Dreaming a fairy-tale Christmas? Christmas in a castle? Surrounded by the stunning scenery of West Scotland and its breath-taking wildlife?
Then wait no more...and let the team at Mingary tailor your ideal festive hideaway.
In Spring 2016, the 13th century Mingary Castle lowered its drawbridge for the first time in 150 years...giving guests the opportunity to be the first to celebrate their Christmas, in a sesquicentennial, with friends and family, taking exclusive use of the entire castle.
Tea and delicious homemade cake await your arrival...indulge your senses afterwards with a four-course meal and carefully chosen selection of Art du Vin wines, before finishing the evening off with a dram of some of the finest single cask whiskies by Adelphi. A hearty full cooked Scottish breakfast starts each day...and so much more.
The Mingary Castle team will work with you to create a bespoke package, ensuring the Christmas of your dreams...
There is no place like Mingary to experience the magic of a castle Christmas in Scotland.
