Sitting proud on its own rocky outcrop, the distinctive silhouette of Mingary Castle has looked over the Sound of Mull for centuries. The seat of Clan MacIain for over 300 years, it’s one of Scotland’s true hidden gems. Until early 2016, the Castle was all but an abandoned ruin. After three years of meticulously orchestrated restoration work, its impressive ranges now house an elegant combination of luxurious accommodation and history.
