A stunning riverside holiday home sleeping up to 6 people in a converted 19th Century former jute mill.
The Jute Store at Brooklinn Mill
Brooklinn Mill is a superb place to spend a holiday. The building is the former store building of a converted 19th Century jute mill, packed with original features and real character. Bookings normally run Friday to Friday. Short breaks and flexible start days outside of peak times are available.
There are two separate holiday homes available to rent throughout the year either individually or combined:
The Jute Store, sleeping 6 people, occupies the lower floors of the building. The rooms are spacious and many have amazing views over the river and mill weir. The 3 bedrooms are beautifully furnished and the comfortable beds are made up with feather duvets and crisp cotton sheets. There are two double rooms - one of which has a fabulous east facing balcony, and one twin room. The large bathroom has a very unusual sunken bath which is a real talking point. The well-stocked book room, which also is home to the piano, is a great place to relax, taking in the view. There is a large kitchen equipped by people who love cooking, making holiday cooking a pleasure rather than a chore. The large living room has stunning views over the river and weir and a lovely little balcony. There are leather sofas, a good supply of games and DVDs, and a gorgeous wood-burning stove which is the focal point of the room in the evening.
The Loft occupies the top floor of the building, and has sloped ceilings, breathtaking views across the rivers, tree-tops and to the hills beyond. The Loft has an open-plan living, dining and kitchen space to make best use of the space. There is one bedroom with a king-size bed, and a beautiful bathroom with a double- ended bath.
Both homes have been fitted out and equipped to a high standard. The kitchens have been equipped by people who love cooking so there are plenty of good quality pots, pans and utensils in the kitchen because we believe cooking on holiday should be a pleasure not a chore.
There are DVDs, books and games as well as maps and guidebooks.

Why Louise Copeland chose Blairgowrie
We have made Brooklinn Mill our home - we live in the main mill building. What is really special about Brooklinn Mill is the combination of the stunning location, the hydro-power, and the sense that you are a million miles from anywhere else - but are only a mile from Blairgowrie. Oh, and the red squirrels and other wild-life that live here too.
What makes this House unique
Brooklinn Mill enjoys a breathtaking location overlooking two rivers. The mill weir provides a stunning back-drop to the mill buildings. It is a quiet and tranquil place - the loudest sound is usually that of the rivers tumbling past. It has a feel of being miles away from anywhere else, but is only a mile away from Blairgowrie with all of its amenities and is well-situated for exploring large parts of Scotland. In recent years we have refurbished the hydro-electric scheme on the site so most of the time we generate all the power used here, exporting the surplus power to the grid. Don't worry though, when the turbine is off, we use mains power! We also have a heat-pump to provide the heating and hot water.

Very well equipped cottage. Beautiful location. Great hosts.
Cottage was home from home and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Clean, spacious and very welcoming. Beautiful area with lots to do. We loved our time there.
Thank you. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Jute Store, and hope that you will come back again some time in the future. We would love to welcome you back again!
We've spent half term holidays in the Jute Store and found it ideal in many respects. The apartment is in an amazing secluded location right at the river. It is extremely spacious, more than one could assume by the pictures, and the combination of the historic building and really well maintained internals make it the most authentic place we stayed at. Both the living room and the kitchen were very well equipped, way more than one would wish for. The guide books and information on the local area came extremely handy, quite a help for the unprepared.
As it was our first trip to Scotland the location was ideal for day trips by car to Edinburgh, St Andrews and Aberdeen or alternatively to the south side of the Cairngorms for some hiking. But the town is also just a short walk away. It was fascinating to be so close to nature but the town as well.
Thank you very much. We are so pleased you enjoyed your time at the Jute Store and that you found it an ideal base for exploring Scotland: that is one of things we really like about it too.We hope you will come back to stay again some time in the future. It would be great to welcome you back!
Gorgeous, restful retreat in perfect accomodation!
We were very much looking forward to our mini break at the Jute mill based on past reviews, website photographs and positive contact with the owner, Louise Copland. Nothing could have prepared us for the beauty of this place, it's location, spaciousness, luxury and restful ambiance - the website simply doesn't do it justice! We spent a wonderful long weekend here celebrating a family Birthday, and would highly recommend it to others . We also looked at the smaller loft before we left, a lovely bright airy space with views of the river - perfect for a couple, or to extend a group staying in the Jute Mill. Louise was warm and welcoming without interfering in any way, and couldn't have been a more perfect host. Highly recommended all round :)
Exactly what we were looking for.
Without realizing what we needed, The Jute Store and Louise provided us with the perfect environment for our stay in Scotland. The property was gorgeous and well maintained. Adequate parking, some basic cooking ingredients, plenty of paper goods, a generous number of towels, and detergents were all provided. The clothes washer and dryer and the WiFi were just icing on the cake. Although we never had the need, it was fabulous knowing Louise was just next door if we had run into a problem or had questions about local amenities. If we ever find ourselves returning to this particular area of Scotland, we will most definitely be booking this property again.
Thank you for your lovely review! We are so happy you enjoyed your time staying at the Jute Store. We love having guests to stay and share Brooklinn Mill and it is always wonderful to get feedback like this: it makes all the work worthwhile! We do hope you find yourselves back in this part of Scotland again some time. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back.
Amazing property and location
The house is spacious, clean and well kept with. There is a charming reading room with a piano, large selection of books and amazing view to the river. In the lower level there is a large and well equipped kitchen, couches and a cupboard full of board games and toys for children :)
There are lots of marked walking trails around the house, both starting from the property or within a short driving distance. It's possible to walk to the town center with few shops and restaurants, and there is a huge Tesco in the town center with practically everything.
We had a great vacation here which passed too quickly!
Large, warm and comfortable
Louise is a warm and generous host. Thank you Louise for attending our needs.
Would recommend the Jute store to everyone. Such peaceful surroundings. A very beautiful country resort.
