- MINGALA, an island, in the parish of Barra, county of Inverness; containing 113 inhabitants. This is one of the most southern of the Barra isles, and is about two miles in length, and one and three-quarters in breadth. It is separated, on the north, from Pabba by the sound of Mingala, and from Bernera, on the south-west, by the sound of that name. The coast around is bold and rocky, and in some parts the ground rises to a great height; the island is chiefly pastoral, and near it is a rock whose summit is covered by luxuriant verdure, to which the sheep are elevated by ropes, and left to pasture for the season. Innumerable seafowl visit the cliffs at the period of incubation, and disappear with their young in autumn.
