Having spent our (Chris and Holly) first month working for Mingary Castle swatting up on castle history, the project so far and planning how to enable Mingary to support its self going forward we finally have something to show for our efforts.........
and 'In hope I byde' from the crest of the MacIains. We are looking forward to getting cracking now on ordering the Standard to be flown over the Castle.
Now live the new mingarycastle.com (mingarycastle.co.uk) website will become the direct booking website for the Castle, for now it is ready for interested people to sign up for a newsletter so they can keep up to date with opening dates, prices and what we have to offer.
When the renovation work is complete the Castle will open its doors as both an exclusive 5 bedroom fully catered venue for holidays, weddings and events plus an amazing B&B! Not only does this allow people to enjoy the stunning workmanship and furnishing that have gone into this project, but it forms an important phase of the Trusts funding that will help to pay for the restoration and up keep of the Castle.
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.
