Although the house is in a private location it is within walking distance of Cuil Bay and many mountain and forest walks and the new Oban to Fort William cycle path. Situated in the small village of Duror, Mingulay is located half way between Oban and Fort William and is only 5 minutes drive from Appin and 10 minutes drive from Ballachullish and Glencoe.
How to find us:
We are easy to find on the A828 Argyll Coastal Route off the A82, we are almost 1/2 way between Oban (25 miles) and Fort William (20 miles). We are 6 miles south of Ballachulish and 10 miles north of Appin. If you get lost on your way just give us a phone on 01631 740 253 or 07880 677 953
From the north -
Arriving from Fort William or Glencoe on the A82 you reach a big roundabout south of the bridge over Loch Leven at Ballachulish. At the roundabout follow the sign for A828 Oban, Argyll Coastal Route. Travel 5 miles and once you are through Kentallen we are the first turning on the right as you come into Duror (just after the Achandarroch Caravan park sign which is on the left). Mingulay is clearly signposted at the end of our single track road.
From the south -
Coming north from Oban on the A85 we are 20 miles north of the Connel Bridge in the direction of Fort William on the A828. On route you pass the Oban Sealife Centre and then after Appin you will see Castle Stalker on your left. When you reach the sign for Duror, Mingulay House is found 2 miles further on clearly signposted on the left hand side (just after Pineapple House).
The overnight sleeper from London Euston goes direct to Fort William. There is also a train station at Connel and Oban. Bus connections to Duror are available, however to make the most of the location hiring a car or cycling are recommended.
