Mingulay is the 2nd largest of Bishop's Isles in the Scotland's Outer Hebrides archipelago. The island is located approx 19 km (12 ml) south of Barra Island and is famous for its seabird populations, including black-legged kittiwakes, razorbills and puffins, nesting in the sea-cliffs, among the highest in British Isles.
There are important iron age remains on Mingulay. The culture of the isle was influenced by the Vikings and early Christianity. Between 15th-19th centuries Mingulay was part of Clan MacNeil of Barra lands, but subsequently suffered at absentee landlords' hands.
After two thousand years of continuous habitation, in 1912 Mingulay was abandoned by the Gaelic-speaking residents and has remained uninhabited since. The island is no longer used for grazing sheep. Mingulay is also associated with "Mingulay Boat Song", though it was composed in 1938, after island's abandonment. Since 2000, Mingulay has been owned by The National Trust for Scotland.
