We stayed at Hooting Lodge for a week from Saturday 28th September 2019.
I had the good fortune to first meet Jayne and Andrew at the Garbh Eilean wildlife hide near Strontian during my June 2015 visit around the Scottish Highlands. Following a subsequent Google search for Mingarry Lodges which Jayne had mentioned to me, we stayed at Hooting Lodge in September 2015 and September 2016.
This was our third stay at Hooting Lodge and the fact that we booked this (long overdue) third stay is a recommendation in itself for this wonderful accommodation. So, with a real risk of repeating my high praise, I am submitting a further review.
Everything about Mingarry Lodges is highly recommended:
• The very informative website
• The ease of searching for availability
• The ease of booking and payment
• The “getting here” information provided after booking confirmation
• The ideal location with easy access to the landscapes and wildlife of the Ardnamurchan peninsula and further beyond to Mull and Skye
• The exceptionally high quality, warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean accommodation with everything provided that you could possibly need
• The wealth of information provided about the lodge itself, the surrounding area, what to see, where to go, etc.
• The on-site wildlife watching experience, both live right outside the windows or via the TV camera feeds .... amazing!
• .... and last, but by no means least, the friendly welcome, hospitality and knowledge of Jayne and Andrew
As I said a previous review: “We have stayed in many self-catering cottages and cabins in the Scottish Highlands over many years but I can say without any hesitation at all that Mingarry Lodges is by far the best in terms of quality, value for money, friendly hosts and on site wildlife watching” .... that opinion has not changed at all.
Well done Jayne and Andrew for all the ongoing hard work that you continue to put in to make Mingarry Lodges so attractive for guests and the resident and visiting wildlife. You deserve great credit and this is reflected in the 5 star reviews that you continue to receive.
Many thanks again for making our third stay so enjoyable.
Mingarry Lodges is exceptional. For anyone reading the reviews, don’t just think about booking, do it! We will definitely be returning.
