We all enjoyed out return visit to The Mill each time it grows on us more. The new washing machine and tumble dryer looked great but we did not use it as we were happy without having this chore to do on holiday. The house is looking great and was as clean and crisp as ever. We did enjoy the large TV in the living room and had such a relaxed week that we will book for longer next year. It was great to see you again Sandra and thanks for all the little extra touches that may our stay feel special
This property is excellent, the house is wonderful it is just like home from home, only better and in a wonderful location. The house has 4 good size bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, which made getting ready to go out in the mornings so easy - no rota needed - everyone could shower at the same time.
The living areas have ample room, and the kitchen is so well equipped, everything you need is there.
We will be planning another visit in the future.
Just returned from a fantastic holiday in this wonderful house that is just like home but better. We loved the space outside with the new grass and area for the kids to safely place in . Inside we were truly spoilt by the house and its stunning rooms with ample room for the 6 of us to enjoy and the kids had the family room to allow them to do their own thing and to give us a wee bit of adult time!.
The big new TV, Sandra is amazing and suits the size of the room very well. This is out second visit to this area and we have loved exploring and going to rosemarkie and fortrose in search of the dolphins and being lucky enough to see them was an added bonus. The house is in the perfect place, just 10 mins from the highland capital of Inverness and on the other direction we can visit Sandras West coast and then enjoy the other direction of dornoch and the sandy beach and our visit to Shin Falls. Lots of nice places to eat out and thanks for the basket of welcome gifts which we did enjoy and all the local information and it was great to get a read of the visitors books going back 10 years and to get tips and advice of things to do and places to eat and we even enjoyed ordered a chinese carry out from Dingwall which was delivered to the house free of charge. A treat after a big day out at Aviemore which is a 45 min drive away.
Next year we will be back to visit you again and will be telling our friends about
you and your charming elegant property and take care and look after this special place for us.
This house is just the perfect base to explore the highlands and we could not have wished for more. The welcome backet of "goodies" was a nice touch but not very good for the waistline!! The peace and quiet we loved and all the birds to see around was an added bonus.
We, a family of 6 had lots of space with 3 bathrooms and showers it was never a rush in the morning but as we were in no hurry to leave your beautiful home Sandra this was not a problem. looking forward to returning next year and thanks for everything.
You must be very proud of your husband for building such a lovely home! We enjoyed reading your welcome pack especially about your family.Most evenings I took a walk around the graveyard. So peaceful. Found the pirates grave,another time I spend ages watching 4 goldfinches flying about by the gate. Thank very much again for your help and understanding and we will certainly aim to return to your special property.
My family and I haved stayed at this property for 4 times now and each time we enjoy it more - the house is great and the little extra touches make it special. the new sofas and recliner in the family room are ideal for relazing after a day out in the highlands. We will return to this house again and again as it provides us with everything we need for a comfortable, warm and welcoming holiday base.
My family and I had a great holiday at The Mill and would recommend it to everyone. The house is just great and has everything you need for your holiday in such lovely peaceful surroundings. It is a joy to stay in such a property and we will certainly be returning again next year. Thanks Sandra for everything and the house is a credit to you. Lots of little homely welcoming touches made our stay a unforgettable one and we will certainly be recommending you to our family and friends.
