“Luxurious peaceful get away”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Myself and family, (husband and 4 children) stayed at this beautiful cottage over New year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were very impressed by the cleanliness of the mill, it was spotless. The owners thought of everything to make sure you are very comfortable and have everything you need at hand . We have visited Scotland several times now and we found this the best we have ever stayed in.Our children loved it too, especially the dart board down stairs and all the board games and computer. We truly did have a fabulous Xmas/New year family get away together and enjoyed the luxury. The owners, Allan and Suzanne were always on hand to assist with anything we required. We would definitely love to return, thanks again!!

“Fantastic, idyllic!”

We booked the mill for a relaxing few days away from it all and it exceeded our expectations! The mill itself has all the modern features you would want (fantastic kitchen!) but still has so much character. The owners were welcoming and friendly, little touches like having the wood burning stove already burning for arrival were lovely.

I would recommend this property to anyone. I'm sure we will be back soon!

Liked best: Wood burning stove, especially in November when it was freezing outside!
Liked least: Internet signal wasn't strong, but it meant that I was forced to put the phone down for a few days (not a bad thing!)

We recently stayed here and had a brilliant time! The Mill is lovely and clearly done to a high standard, it really did exceed our expectations! When we arrived the place was spotless and we really couldn't have asked for anything better. The local walks are great and the view from the living room is stunning. We cant wait to go back and will definitely be booking to stay here again!

“Brilliant place to stay.”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We have stayed 4 or 5 times and enjoyed visit. A friendly welcome each time, some milk for a drink after a long drive. It is becoming a regular stay for us and we are looking forward to the next time.

The view out of the lounge windows is great and such a peaceful spot to relax. It is an ideal location for whatever you want to do. A good selection of shops in nearby towns, good food, lots to do.

The Mill is well equipment, clean with space to spread out. The living area is upstairs to take advantage of the view.

“Couldn't ask for a better holiday rental!”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Burnbrae Mill is a beautiful converted mill in a peaceful and picturesque location. It provides everything we could ask for in a holiday rental... and more besides. It is cleverly designed to make the most of its location, with the lounge upstairs to maximise the beautiful view. It has a well equipped kitchen and plenty of space inside which makes it ideal for a family holiday. There are many things to do nearby for people of all interests. Owners always helpful and happy to do whatever they can to make the stay memorable. We continue to go back year after year.
