  • "We had a very relaxing break at The Old Mill."

    The location is ideal for exploring the wonderful scenery in that part of Scotland. The view out of the window from the kitchen table will live long in our memories and the family were very friendly. We lit the fire in the living room on a couple of evenings but the kitchen was always warm. The bedrooms were small, but this was not a problem.

  • "A lovely location and a pleasant cottage with everything you could need for a nice week away from it all."

    The local area offers lots of great walks and things to do. The owners were very nice and happy to chat or leave you to yourself. If you want peace, tranquillity and getting away from the mobile phone, this is the place to go, this is the a cottage to visit. You will find yourselves sitting at the kitchen table watching nature pass by.

  • "We and our dogs really enjoyed our time at the cottage."

    Really friendly people, lovely location with plenty of dogs walking scope for our too large dogs. You have to be sensible when walking dogs where live stock is concerned but that was not issue at all. The offer of on site produced lamb was great and very tasty as where the eggs. Be prepared for a firm mattress on the double bed.

    You will need to use the woodburner and purchase fuel as it would be cold without. I was there autumn time.

The property

Cannich 3 miles.

Tucked away down a private driveway in a peaceful location, where you will find wildlife and livestock in abundance, next door to the owners property is The Old Mill.

This stone-built cottage is situated near the friendly village of Cannich, with access to the stunning Glen Affric National Nature Reserve in a lovely part of the Scottish Highlands.

It is ideal for a couple looking to escape the hustle and bustle of a city, or for a small family seeking some peace and quiet in the countryside.

The ruins of an old farmhouse positioned next door only add to the appeal of this renovated mill, with plenty of character oozing from the interior.

You are surrounded by sweeping hills and farmland, a beautiful setting for a holiday.

Step through the gated entrance to the front door and enter straight into the living/dining room, which boasts a vaulted ceiling and many original characteristics, bringing the space to life.

You can relax on the sofa on return from a long walk and warm your feet by the fire.

The TV has access to programmes via the internet or you can simply take in the views and enjoy the company of your loved ones.

Next door, the kitchen is well-equipped with modern units and a breakfast table, perfect for enjoying your morning coffee with the views and sounds of wildlife waking up outside.

The ground floor also plays host to a contemporary bathroom with walk in shower.

Climb the carpeted staircase to the bedrooms and rest your head for the evening.

The single room is ideal for those travelling with a child.

The village of Cannich is easily reached by car, with a shop, pub, post office and restaurant.

You have a wealth of walking, cycling and fishing in the area, with the Glen Affric being a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts.

The thriving city of Inverness is also worth a visit, with its castle, art gallery, Victorian market and leisure centre all straddling the River Ness, which flows into the renowned Loch Ness!

Brave a trip to see the home of the Loch Ness Monster, or so folklore would have you believe.

This charming cottage makes the perfect getaway to Scotland.
