Old Mill Holiday Cottage Bonar Bridge Scotland

Old Mill Holiday Cottage, Bonar Bridge, Scotland. Ideally located in a beautiful wooded setting, just 11/2 miles from Bonar Bridge, Migdale Water Mill, a former water mill which dates back to the 1860s, has been completely renovated to a high standard, and still retains many of the original mill features. There is a mill stream just 5 metres from the detached property, with a working mill wheel which can be viewed from an internal window in the kitchen. (Due to proximity of water, children need to be supervised). The careful use of natural materials in the renovation, including wood and slate, add to the cosy ambience, as does the open fire, and the bedrooms feature hand made wooden beds. One of the ground floor bedrooms makes this property suitable for disabled access. This is a magnificent area of peace and tranquillity, surrounded by wonderful scenery, with an abundance of wildlife to observe. Within easy driving distance, the landscape varies from wild cliffs and hills to lonely moorland and remote beaches. Enjoy a round or two of golf on the excellent courses nearby. There is a quiet 9-hole course at Bonar Bridge 3/4 mile away, and the excellent links course the famous Royal Dornoch golf club, 20 minutes drive away. Try pony trekking, river and loch fishing for salmon and trout, explore numerous castle ruins and ancient monuments, or just enjoy walking and touring the Highlands. Travel north to visit John O’Groats and the Orkney Islands. The Highland Capital of Inverness is approximately 3/4 of an hour’s drive away, and Dunrobin Castle, once seat of the Earls and Dukes of Sutherland, 25 miles, has a distinct French influence, and makes for an interesting day out. Skiing approximately 2 hours drive. Shooting available locally by arrangement. Beamed living room with wooden floor. Large dining-room/conservatory with slate floor and patio doors to garden.
