Providing unique, quirky holiday accommodation which has been renovated to add the comforts of a modern home, whilst maintaining the features of a listed period cottage, The Mill House is a traditional stone walled cottage set on a small holding in the heart of rural Perthshire, but close to the town of Aberfeldy. The cottage has spacious accommodation for up to 4 people, with private enclosed garden area and further shared grounds including a small burn,. It is a great option for a family holiday, but also very attractive to couples wanting some rural seclusion, .to sit and listen to the burn and to the waterfall which cascades down the side of the original Old Mill which sits at right angles to the detached Mill House cottage. It is reached via a private drive off a ‘no through’ country lane. Walks are available directly from the house- Weem, Dull, Kenmore and The Birks, Aberfeldy
The garden is to the side and rear of the property and adjoins a 5 acre area available for exploration, edged by an unfenced burn. The small holding is home to a small flock of Soay Sheep, a rare and endangered Hebridean breed which are almost goat like, but people friendly and will come to a bucket to feed.
Regardless of your preferences, the surrounding area does not disappoint, with something for everyone from white water rafting and canyoning for the adrenaline junkies, to historic locations like Menzies Castle and the Black Watch Monument for those who prefer a more sedate life. Walkers are spoilt for choice with at least 3 Munro's within driving distance, not to mention the stunning waterfalls and gorges of the Birks Moness Burn. The property even provides bike storage for anyone looking to take advantage of the local mountain biking routes of Camserney and Dull Wood.
For any country sport enthusiasts, brown trout and salmon fishing is available on the Rivers Lyon, Tay, Dochart and Tummel, though licenses are required and shooting and stalking is available on a number of local estates.
Aberfeldy itself is approximately 3 miles away and offers an array of shops, delis and restaurants and is centrally located enough that a trip to the larger cities of Perth and Stirling (approx. 1-hour drive) isn't unreasonable.
