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.

A Stay at Mingary Castle
This is a guest post from David Howard, Mingary Castle's first guest.
We were absolutely delighted and honoured to be the very first guests at Mingary Castle. I have been visiting Ardnamurchan since I was a boy and have made regular visits to the ruins over the years.
I followed John Haylet's fantastic Mingary Castle Restoration Blog closely and to see the wonderful metamorphosis close up was just fantastic. The extent and quality of the work was staggering. Thanks Chris for a most informative tour and talk.
Our stay was brilliant and we really enjoyed the well appointed rooms and comfortable furnishings.
I'm sure the Castle's original occupants would have had a very different experience.
Thanks Holly for the wonderful and exceptional cuisine. Our dinner was truly memorable.
Thanks Moira for looking after us so well.
All three of you contributed to one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences we have ever had.
