At Mingarry Lodges you do not have to venture far to see some amazing wildlife. We have a thriving population of red squirrels and a wide variety of woodland birds in the woodlands and they can be readily seen and enjoyed from the comfort of the Lodges. Pine martens and other creatures of the night can be tempted onto the veranda for some amazing twilight encounters, and have been a particular highlight of many a family holiday. Red and roe deer have frequently been seen in the woods and hills behind the Lodges.
Each spacious woodland lodge has south facing views to Ben Resipole, with ready access to Atlantic oak woodlands, hills and moorland behind. The lodges are equipped to the highest standard and combine rustic charm with home comforts. Each cabin sleeps four with one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, and has an upstairs bathroom and a separate ground-floor shower room. The lodges are located in the grounds of The Old Chapel House where Jayne and Andrew are on hand to offer a warm welcome, as well as providing local walking, wildlife and touring knowledge to allow you to make the most of your holiday.
Mingarry is an ideal base to explore Ardnamurchan, Moidart, Arisaig, Mallaig, Morvern, Mull and The Small Isles.

Enjoy a home-cooked meal of locally sourced smoked salmon or venison in the stylish dining area on bone china tableware with crystal glasses and crisp white napkins. At the end of the day, relax on the leather sofas, read a book or watch a dvd from our carefully chosen Highland themed library, or recount your latest wildlife sightings and experiences over a wee dram.
