“Perfect in Every Way”
Reviewed 22 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Our stay at Hooting Lodge was perfect in every way. The Lodge had every comfort one could ever want - we could happily have stayed in the Lodge all week and not ventured out at all.
Wildlife at Ministry Lodges was abundant and enjoyable. Every effort was made by Jayne and Andrew to ensure we saw the resident wildlife up close.
We would happily stay there again and will look forward to doing so.
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your wonderful accommodation!

“If you like wildlife, you'll love this place,”
Reviewed 21 October 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Just had one of the best holidays ever at Mingarry Lodges, Scotland,
stayed in Hooting Lodge and everything from the reception, accommodation, surroundings, and wildlife, was superb, the weather was pretty good, and the local midges were very friendly to.!!
Jayne & Andrew were excellent hosts, knowledgeable and informative, with nothing being to much trouble,

“A beautiful quiet escape. Would definitely recommend.”
Reviewed 21 October 2017 for a stay in July 2017

If you're after somewhere in the West Highlands that is away from the main tourist areas and still unspoiled then this is the place to go. Very friendly owners with plenty of tips on how to find local wildlife, walking routes and where to eat.

This is my second stay at Mingarry Lodges and I have already booked my 3rd. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to escape the crowds.

“A gold standard in peaceful hideaways”
Reviewed 16 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

If you're here looking for negative feedback there's probably more chance of finding the Loch Ness monster! The Ardnamuchan peninsula is an excellent location for wildlife viewing and walking in the Scottish Highlands. The lodges are extremely well appointed. Because they live right next door, Jayne and Andrew are able to maintain them to the very highest standard. I'd say they are cleaned to the molecular level! There is a wealth of information regarding the local flora and fauna. Every effort has been made to optimise your holiday experience. CCTV cameras are installed around the lodges allowing you to observe the red squirrels, badgers, deer, pine martens and a plethora of other creatures who make Mingarry their home. This wildlife show on the TV certainly beats EastEnders in my opinion.
Having managed 22 high-end holiday properties myself, I can say the occupancy rates and repeat bookings for MIngarry Lodges speak volumes.
