This lovingly converted corn mill could be your highland fling. With original features and contemporary touches, these rooms are fit for a party.

This impressive home, sleeping 12 guests and two dogs across five bedrooms, has been beautifully converted from an original corn mill. Retaining many original features, it has both a contemporary and stylish feel throughout, and provides a wonderful base for larger groups of friends or family. Nestled in the beautiful Scottish countryside, those looking to step back from modern life to get back to nature and enjoy the great outdoors, will find this to be the ideal retreat.

There are many clues to this property’s fascinating history with a number of its original features taking centre stage. The original millstone and grinding wheel have been retained in the lounge. An open tread stairway connects the three floors, with natural light filtering through the gaps of the ash wooden flooring. Exposed brickwork and beams, along with botanical prints and unusual objects of art, all add to its distinctive character.

The spacious sitting room is a charming area where you and your guests to relax and unwind in front of the roaring open fire. With two areas offering ample seating, everyone will be able to find a spot, whether they’re curling up with a book or chatting into the early hours. Steps lead up to a large open-plan kitchen and dining area, where any budding chefs in your party will enjoy putting the traditional AGA to work as they whip up a tasty meal. The large table in the adjoining sun porch enjoys lovely views of the garden and is a super place to dine together. A utility room is also a handy space for storing muddy boots and any outdoor equipment you may have brought along.

On the first floor, you’ll find two of the five bedrooms. They are all en-suite and have been beautifully furnished with attractive fabrics, electric blankets and bath robes, for that added touch of indulgence. All have been decorated in warming and neutral tones, creating a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. Heading up to the second floor, you’ll discover a further twin room and a master bedroom, complete with vaulted ceiling and stunning views across the landscape.

The property extends on to a third floor which is home to a spacious attic twin room. This is an ideal place for younger members of the group, with two additional trundle beds to accommodate extra little guests.

Soak up the peace and tranquillity of your surroundings in the enclosed fenced garden, featuring a small stream flowing through, which once ran the mill. If you’re in the mood for a little al fresco dining, then why not get the BBQ going while you enjoy a glass of something chilled?

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had a really lovely stay at Rhynagarrie. We were a group of three families, the room arrangements were perfect for us, we loved the open kitchen dining area which lead down to the sitting room, it was a really lovely spot, I would love to come back. There were plenty of cooking utensils and pots and pans which was great as we cook every night anRead mored loved the HUGE boot room where we stored all our extra stuff we always bring with us. The Towels and bedding were of very good quality It was also very lovely and warm when we stayed in February. The only very small negative is that there is no fence so it wouldn't be safe to take dogs or small children, but then again there is a stream too so you wouldn't leave small children outside to play either.

We were delighted when we arrived at Rhynagarrie Mill, after our long drive from Hertfordshire, but the drive was well worth it. Julie the housekeeper was there to greet us and was very friendly, and indeed had been at the property to receive our Internet shopping and put it all away. The property is breathtaking, and has everything you need, the ARead morega being particularly wonderful to cook on. The nearby village of Archiestown has a lovely quaint hotel where we enjoyed 2 delicious meals, but was soon to change hands so I cannot comment on the current management. There are several distilleries in the area, including the Macallan where we attended a tasting and bought some wonderful single malt. All in all this property is perfect for exploring the surrounding area, or staying put to relax in comfort. We hope to return in the future. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
