Our Mill is a gorgeous home-away-from-home option! Whether you are in need of a peaceful weekend retreat or on a family vacation the Mill is the perfect place to stay in comfort and style.

The casual luxury of the Mill will take your breath away and put you at ease! Look no further...the Mill is the perfect self catering holiday destination for you!

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to meet you in the village of Tomintoul or can provide you with more detailed directions to make your own way to Auchnascraw Mill. Once you arrive, we will show you around the Mill and show you how things work, if needed. Our family have lived here for ten years and we can give you lots of local information and advice about what to see and do in the area. Please let us know how we can help you feel at home!

Other things to note

There is not a landline phone at the Mill but you are welcome to use ours, if needed. There is also no TV but there is wifi. You do not get a mobile signal at the Mill but do get one if you walk up the road and in other areas nearby or through the wifi (you may need an app for this). The closest petrol stations are in Ballindalloch (20 minutes) or Grantown-on-Spey (30 minutes) so be sure to top up your tank before arriving if you need to.

This was one of the most beautiful places we have ever been and we didn't want to leave. Meghan and Sean thought of everything travellers will need to make their stay not only enjoyable, but magical.

What a wonderful place you have! We loved our time there relaxing and enjoying the beautiful nature on our walks in the area. We only wish we could have stayed longer.

Megan was a great host! Everything was ready to go when we got there, from firewood to fresh eggs! The house was absolutely great! Very clean and comfy! Loved having a fire in the evenings, it was a perfect little getaway. House has a secluded feel, nestled in farmland but yet your only 10-15 mins from town. Loved having highland cows just down the road :) We only wish we had had more days to relax at the fantastic mill house!

This is one of the best AirBNB experiences you will ever have. Megan is a great host, ever detail is thought through. The location is stunning, the Mill beyond comfortable. From a fire in the evening, to an excellent kitchen, it's hard to even want to leave and experience the beautiful surroundings. In our many AirBNB experience, we have yet to find one that surpasses this!

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!
