Dreaming a fairytale Christmas? Then dream no longer...and let the team at Mingary tailor-make your perfect festive break.

In 2016, the 13th-century Mingary Castle lowered its drawbridge for the first time in 150 years, giving guests the opportunity to stay with friends and family in this awesome property, taking exclusive use of the entire castle.

There is no place like Mingary to experience the magic of spending Christmas in a castle in Scotland.

Exclusive use of the castle, in four suites sleeping a total of ten people, includes the following:

Christmas Eve
A warm welcome awaits you at Mingary, with tea & mince pies upon arrival, and time to unwind after your journey.
A creative and unique full taster menu is served in the dining room at 7.30pm.
A wee dram of Mingary Castle's own whisky to finish off the evening, then off to bed before Santa visits!

Christmas Day
Awaken to a leisurely breakfast, then time to head out for a breath of air with a stroll along the shore, or maybe the chance to just put your feet up in the sitting room to relax and enjoy a festive movie?
A traditional Christmas dinner is served at 3pm with a glass of Champagne to celebrate the day.
Time to relax in front of the fire in the sitting room, play games, or time for another Christmas film; the choice is yours.
An evening cheese board with Port is served in the sitting room for those who would like to nibble as they relax with good company to end their day.

Boxing Day

After breakfast, it's time for the traditional Boxing Day walk to work off those Christmas calories! A packed lunch is provided for those who venture out to explore.
A warming pot of tea and mince pies upon your return.
A full taster menu is served at 7.30pm to replenish the energy spent exploring.
