Location and Travel Directions
Mingarry is a small crofting community in the West Highlands of Scotland at the gateway to The Ardnamurchan Peninsula. Well situated for touring Lochaber, Moidart, Morvern, The Ardnamurchan as well as The Small Isles and the Isles of Mull and Skye. Mingarry is 3km from the village of Acharacle which provides local amenities including shops, bakery, post office, medical practice, pub and restaurants. There are also inns nearby in Salen and Glenuig.
Mingarry is a wee place indeed, and so not included on a many a modern road map. You may find it on OS Maps marked as Mingarry Park and your SatNav will probably direct you to the nearby village of Dalnabreck if you seach by postcode (PH36 4JX), another wee highland crofting community just a couple of miles down the road. Fear not, Mingarry does indeed exist, and when you make it here you'll probably never want to leave...
People heading to the village of Mingarry have sometimes been known to head down the B007 from Salen to Kilchoan, Way out West on The Ardnamurchan Peninsula towards Mingary Castle. A great day out, but Mingary Castle and the village of Kilchoan are around 45 minutes drive away from the wee village of Mingarry.
Mingarry Lodges is located by two national scenic areas; i.e. Loch Shiel Scenic Area and the scenic area of Morar, Moidart and Ardnamurchan. There are three others nearby; Small Isles, Knoydart, and Ben Nevis and Glen Coe. National Scenic Areas (NSAs) in Scotland are recognized for their outstanding scenery and landscape features.
