Auchnascraw Mill was built around the 1830s and was used for grinding oats. It was a working Mill until the mid 1940s. Lots of original features of the Mill have been incorporated into the renovation to maintain its character. Look for details like the exposed stone walls, use of millstones, gear wheel and unique ironwork. The living room features the original flagstone floors and there is underfloor heating throughout the entire downstairs. Keep cozy in front of the wood stove in the living room, while enjoying panoramic views out each and every window.
The Mill has been professionally decorated with high-quality furnishings and accessories throughout. The kitchen features top-of the-line appliances (induction range & cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle, coffee maker) and is fully equipped for all your cooking needs. You will sleep well in either of our comfortable bedrooms! The master bedroom has a super-king size pillow-top mattress and sofa for lounging. The second bedroom has two single beds with pillow-top mattresses that can be zipped together to create another super-king size bed (please let us know how you would like these beds made up). There is also a sofa bed that can be made into a king-size bed in the upstairs nook between the two bedrooms, which can sleep an additional two people. Currently we do not have a TV but there is free wi-fi. The Mill is also equipped for family fun with lots of games, books and toys to enjoy. There is a washer and dryer in our utility room provided for your convenience.
You will have total privacy at the Mill. This includes the entire house and garden area which is fenced in. There is plenty of parking. We live just across the road if there is anything we can do to help.

Hi! I am Megan and this is my husband Sean. Thanks for taking the time to look at our newly renovated holiday house, Auchnascraw Mill. We hope you like what you see! Our family relocated from Vermont, USA just over eight years ago to be closer to my Scottish husband's family. Auchnascraw Mill was a derelict Mill for many years, but with the help and vision of family and friends . . . the dream to renovate it came to life over a process of the past few years. We are so happy to have saved the building, maintaining its character and will provide you with a warm Highland welcome during your stay!
