We have never been to the Ardnamurchan peninsula before and have been trying to book Mingarry Lodges for a number of years but it has always been booked up. We now know why! Jayne and Andrew were perfect hosts, made us very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed at Tooting Lodge and it had everything we needed for a perfect holiday. We love wildlife and the bird feeders were always well stocked so we saw many different birds feeding from them right outside our window, which was lovely after a day 'out and about' in the area. Thank you for such a relaxing week. We will definitely be back !

Another perfect stay at Mingarry with perfect hosts Jayne and Andrew. Such a beautiful place to relax amongst the wildlife. No worries about COVID as Jayne and Andrew could not do anything more to make your stay safe. The lodge is immaculate and anything you need Jayne and Andrew will do their best you get it. Will be back ………
Another fantastic holiday in Tooting Lodge. This time we took our daughter, boyfriend and their 7 month old baby. The Lodge filled all our expectations as we knew it would. A brand new baby chair was also provided and we had everything we needed. The Lodge is very well equipped and exceptionally clean. The location is perfect and the wildlife excellent. We would highly recommend Mingarry Lodges, nothing is too much trouble and Jayne and her husband ensure everything is in place ready for your arrival. We were greeted with a very warm welcome and we look forward to returning in the future.

We spent a fabulous week at Mingarry Lodges at the end of July. The lodges are immaculate and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Jayne and Andrew are very knowledgeable about wildlife and the local area and are generous hosts. We have already booked a return visit. Thank you.
As always it was a joy to revisit Mingarry Lodges. Jayne and Andrew go all out to ensure perfection. Their attention to detail and witnessing all their hard work during the changeover to ensure a safe visit for holidaymakers is much appreciated. Looking forward to our next visit in October.
We have been several times and have it booked for more and have the intention of further visits. One of the very best holidays for wildlife lovers.
This was our third visit to Mingarry. A wonderful place to unwind and be with nature, which is so important to us. ‘Tooting’ Lodge was amazing with all home comforts, Jayne & Andrew ensure that cleanliness is top of the list, and attention to detail too . We have already booked another stay next year !
After our holiday was delayed a year because of the pandemic, it was so pleasing to finally arrive in Mingarry. We were warmly welcomed by Jayne, one of the owners, and then left alone to settle in, which has to be one of the most well equipped self-catering places that we have ever stayed in. It was also spotlessly clean and extra care had been taken because of the pandemic, hence check-in moved to 18.00 when we stayed. The two bedroomed lodge sleeps 4 easily and is very well proportioned, with everything that you could possibly need. A bonus is seeing the wildlife right on the doorstep - pine marten, red squirrels, deer and birds. The lodge is in a very peaceful location and particularly ideal if you like walking. The welcome pack is extremely informative, with possibly every walk in the area mentioned! Thank you Jayne and Andrew.
Stayed in Tooting Lodge for 2 weeks from 18th June.
The Lodge was fantastic with every need catered for.Our hosts Jayne and Andrew
could not have been more helpful and friendly.Location perfect,peaceful and quiet
with only the noise of the birds.5Star paradise.Back next year.
What an amazing place, such a wildlife haven. Jayne was very welcoming and a great help in identifying the various wild orchids in her garden. Camera feeds to the TV were an added bonus to the viewing of the wildlife. The cabin was very comfortable and well equipped and is in an ideal location for exploring the area. Would highly recommend it.
We recently returned to Mingarry lodges after visiting many years ago and having wonderful memories, and it did not disappoint - it was even more beautiful than I remembered. I don't know where to start! The lodges are just beautiful, so comfy and homely and with everything you could need. The grounds of the lodges are wonderful, I've never heard so much bird song! The wildlife around the lodges is just amazing - one of the days we didn't even leave for a walk and just watched wildlife all day! When you do venture out, there is no shortage of things to do - the local area is just stunning, my favourite place in the UK, and you don't even need to look anything up before you come to be honest as the lodges have so much information and so many amazing sites and walks recommended. I really don't think I could put into words how amazing the lodges are to visit. I can't wait to book another holiday here and come back again as soon as I can! Thank you so much for a much needed break.
Jayne greeted us on arrival and was welcoming, warm and friendly. The cabin was spotlessly clean and very comfortable the furniture being of good quality and kitchen appliances first rate, I don't think there was anything a renter required the Jayne hadn't catered for, it was extremely well equipped. The beds were very clean and comfortable ensuring we had a good nights sleep, linen and towels were also good quality. It wasn't just people Jayne catered for as there were many bird feeders around for everyone to enjoy from the proximity of the sofa. All in all I don't think there is anything I could find fault with even the weather was kind to us which all made for a wonderful weeks holiday.
Central location, superb wildlife. We felt very safe with the thorough cleaning regime instigated by the owners.
This was our second visit to Hooting Lodge, we had previously visited in Autumn, but wanted to see the area in Spring.
We initially booked for last May but due to Covid the visit was delayed for a year.
Hooting Lodge is the best equipped self catering facility we have ever visited, there is just everything that you need. We were also very impressed by the thoroughness of the precautions taken due to Covid. The risk was truly minimal. We felt most welcome.
Moydart is a fantastic area in Spring, with great scenery, a long and interesting history, superb wildlife, but relatively unspoilt.
We are enthusiastic walkers and enjoyed a wide range of walking, all well described in the lodge information.
One feature we greatly enjoyed was the cameras around the lodge that were displayed on the television, and provided playback. We discovered so much from them that we did not watch any conventional television.
Our abiding memories are the fresh greens of the trees and hillside covered in primroses, and the view from Ben Hiant!
We have stayed here on previous occasions. Jayne and Andrew could not be more accommodating. The cleanliness and covid cleaning were perfect. As before an extremely well equipped cabin with unbelievable attention to every detail..
We will be back. Jayne and Andrew just feel like friends.
I just thought the whole set up was first class. The Lodges are lovely and extremely well equipped. We are going again. Ken
We have stayed here many times and the lodges are always homely comforting places to stay. The effort the owners Jayne and Andrew put into making your holiday so special is outstanding. You could not want for anything in the lodge - everything imaginable is there for you. The attention to superb cleanliness has always been outstanding but in these times of the pandemic so much extra is done which involves so much effort and time. Thank you for all of this. We had a great holiday as always.
Another fabulous peaceful, relaxing stay at Mingarry lodges! Especially needed in this crazy year. Jayne and Andrew put so much into making you feel at home, everything you could think of provided and all a very high standard. Felt extremely safe, the extra work and time involved to ensure lodges comply with covid restrictions is outstanding. Our 5th visit and will definitely be back, location, high standards, walks, wildlife, scenery have now spoilt us for anywhere else!! Always sad to leave but always know we'll be back! ❤️
We were lucky to be able to escape before the next lockdown and enjoy a break in this beautiful Lodge. Mingarry Lodge was recommended to us by a friend and we were certainly not disappointed. Jayne and Andrew provide their guests with everything that they need and more. Their attention to details is second to none. The weather wasn't so good so we weren't able to cycle as planned but we still went out everyday exploring this rugged and beautiful region. The autumnal colours were amazing.
