Geography and geology
Mingay is in eastern part of Loch Dunvegan. It is due south of Ardmore Point and west of Waternish, both on Skye. It also looks south to the Skye mountain Beinn Bhreac, and to the south east, Sgeir nam Biast.
The island's name is Old Norse in origin, which is in turn the origin of many of the placenames on nearby Skye, as well as the name of Isay, and the neighbouring Clett (Scottish Gaelic: Cleit from Old Norse klettr, meaning a rock.)
