Situated in the small working crofting community of Mingarry, 3km from the village of Acharacle, Mingarry Lodges is an ideal base to explore Moidart and Ardnamurchan, as well as The Small Isles, Mull, Fort William and Lochaber.
Both cabins are equipped to a high standard and are decorated to compliment the unique rustic character of the log cabin interior and to showcase it's woodland location. The kitchens have fully integrated appliances, including dishwasher, washing machine, full sized fridge freezer, AEG electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave and all those little extras to make you feel at home. The sitting rooms have comfortable leather sofas, a 26/32 inch screen LCD TV (with free sat), DVD player, CD bluetooth stereo and free WiFi internet access. There is also a tumble drier, iron and ironing board in each Lodge.
The double bedrooms have views towards Loch Shiel and Ben Resipole at the front, and the twin rooms have views of the woodlands to the rear. Egyptian cotton bedding, slippers, and luxury towels are provided and luxury bath robes are available to hire. There is a cosy bathroom upstairs with a full sized bath and a separate shower room downstairs. Fully controllable electric central heating ensures a comfortable stay whatever the season.
Mingarry Lodges are equipped with the wildlife enthusiast in mind. Maps, walking books, binoculars, identification guides, wildlife DVDs and our comprehensive local walking and wildlife guides help you to maximise your wildlife encounters and enjoyment of the area. The owners, Jayne and Andrew, are also on hand to share their local knowledge and passion for wildlife.
Both lodges have a veranda overlooking the garden at the front and back onto an enclosed woodland garden to the rear with ready access to the Atlantic oak woodland, hills and moorland beyond.
We manage the gardens and grounds to maximise biodiversity and provide a home for nature, supporting chequered skipper, pearl-bordered fritillary, small pearl-bordered fritillary, green hairstreak butterflies and narrow-bordered bee hawk-moth, as well as a thriving population of slow worms and other not so wee beasties.
Mingarry Lodges provide the perfect Highland retreat for couples, families and family groups interested in walking, wildlife and photography.
