The Mingary Castle restoration blog was written by Jon Haylett, who lives in the local village of Kilchoan. Now that restoration is almost complete Holly and Chris Bull will take over to report on bringing the Castle back to life.

For Sale - Mingary Castle

Yes, you can now buy a bit of Mingary Castle at a price which, considering its age, many would consider very reasonable indeed.

The Trustees of the Castle, who have somewhere over £2 million to raise to preserve this wonderful building and bring it back to life, are asking supporters to sponsor a stone, starting with the stones of the east wall, shown in this picture.

The stone you select will be assigned to you alone, its serial number, exact location and a name that you may choose for it will be entered into the records.  It's a way in which you can become associated with the castle and with the effort to save it.  To become part of Mingary Castle's support network, go to the 'Sponsor a Stone' link at the top of this page, and click 'Go Sponsor a Stone'.  Stones that are red have already been sponsored.

Amongst other things, the process of choosing a stone is fun - and your support is very, very much appreciated.


  1. Sponsor a Stone is a great idea but it doesn't seem to want to accept my selection! Please get someone to look at it as there may be many other prospective 'castle owners' out there who are trying to do the same and giving up.
