‘Mini’ Beginnings

The Mini Cooper is arguably one of the most easily recognisable automobiles ever produced, which is why it is perfect for you to take a ride in for your special occasion. The original Mini started production in the late ‘50s and quickly became one of the best selling cars in Europe, and we are very glad to have our very original 90’s custom detailed Mini at the gates of Shieldhill Castle.

The original features that enthusiasts love about the classic Minis were kept throughout upgrading the details of the body. Mini collectors Rab and Colin Frame, owner of Shieldhill Castle, seen the potential in bringing a form of transportation for special occasions, events and weddings that no other local venue has. The history of this mini within the Frame family is one for the history books, and now having it at Shieldhill Castle has tied it up perfectly for Colin and his family in this next new exciting chapter.

People tend to say that “big things often have ‘mini’ beginnings”, so share in this journey with Shieldhill Castle by following where our Mini goes.
