Welcome 2019 in with unforgettable memories in this hidden gem on the West Coast of Scotland. Sitting proud, above the Sound of Mull, on the beautiful Ardnamurchan peninsula, Mingary Castle, with all its charm, offers a unique New Year celebration.

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.

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

A wee dram of Mingary Castle's own whisky finishes off the evening.

New Year's Eve
Awaken to a leisurely breakfast, then time to head 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 time spent with friends and family.
