Here's what people say about us

  • Thank you for a fabulous holiday in The Mill. It had everything we could have wished for. From the warm welcome and delicious home baking to the exceptionally comfy beds and sofas. The mill is beautifully restored and feels very homely. The kitchen has everything we could possibly have needed and we loved the log burning stove and peaceful views. We did several walks of varying lengths and off road cycles from the door. The Glenlivet Bike Trails were definitely worth a visit too. We enjoyed Tomintoul, the little gallery is lovely and we were lucky enough to catch the Games. We didn’t venture far this trip but have had great days out to various distilleries, castles and coasts previously. We can recommend the Scottish Dolphin Centre at Spey Bay and the Peregrine viewing near Huntly is worth the short walk.
    Thank you Sean and Megan, we’ll be back soon!
