The converted Mill is a lovely place in an amazingly practical and stunning location. The cottage is ingeniously converted with a great well resourced kitchen on a mezzanine above the main large lounge which has a great real fire to enjoy. The local areas are beautiful and easy to get everything you need, by walking, biking or in a car if you really have to. Great family of hosts with nice neighbours.   January 2023


Absolutely stunning location. Hosts were fantastically helpful while also making the stay feel quite private. It was a cosy cottage in a snowy wonderland so was allround a magical stay.   January 2023


Great, thank you!   December 2022


Lovely location, great facilities with private garden, very well equipped property. Would definitely return.   October 2022


Mill of Tilquhillie Millstream Bridge


Lovely place. Thoroughly enjoyed both my stays.   October 2022


Lovely accommodation would highly recommend   September 2022


We really enjoyed our stay! The accommodation is comfortable, clean and in a great location. The sound of the little stream outside was really relaxing. I would recommend following the directions on the website and the sat nav got a bit confused.   September 2022


Great place to stay, fabulous location

Lovely wee cottage in the woods. Surprisingly spacious and was perfect for a family of four. Beds were comfy, kitchen well equipped and the shower was good. Great base for exploring the countryside, visiting Aberdeen, or in our case nearby relations.   August 2022


Beautiful converted mill in a fantastic location. Highly recommend a stay here.   August 2022


The cottage is even more lovely in real life than it looks online. Very characterful property and very comfortable. Comfy beds, lots of hot water and everything you’ll need for your stay. Idyllic peaceful location but still close to Banchory, and lots to do in the surrounding area. Would love to return.   August 2022


Great area for touring multiple castles, Cairngorm, Balmoral, coast. Fabulous Aboyne highland games just 20 min away. Kitchen well equipped although a tad old. Lovely garden. Tea and milk provided upon arrival. Thanks for having us.   August 2022


Excellent place to stay with the best hosts we have ever met, they are so helpful and really made us feel at home
Outstanding location very quiet and peaceful, we will definitely be returning in the future…Thank you.

Superb mill conversion, spacious living area and very well equipped kitchen.
So quiet and peaceful but just 5 minutes from Banchory.  A real find.

Mill of Tilquhillie Converted Water Mill


An ideal location and accommodation for a family new year break, everything was perfect. Our trips to Lock Muick on the Balmoral Estate and to visit the seals on the beech north of Aberdeen were very special.   December 2021


The mill is comfortable and spacious accommodation in a lovely quiet setting with easy access to facilities at Banchory.
It was beautifully clean, well equipped and we enjoyed the roaring log fire.   November 2021


Wonderful place, excellent communications, high standards of cleanliness and hygiene, marvellous atmosphere... This is a great place to be, whether you, like us, are after a quiet, de-stressing time or are heading for mountain adventure. Faultless.   October 2021


The mill house was excellent, and would recommend.   September 2021


Stunning and very welcoming place to stay , beautiful village of Banchory close by so peaceful ! Definitely worth a stay! Perfect location to visit loads of local attractions and lots of places to eat near by too!   August 2021


This is a truly unique property with a tranquil vibe. The space has a peaceful, calming feel with the babble of the stream a constant and soothing sound. The cottage has a lovely and private garden, where we ate most of our meals. It is very relaxing to sit outside listening to the birds and watching the bats flit through the trees. My greyhound Tigger also very much enjoyed her stay. She was happiest lying on the grass, ears pricked up and nose twitching, taking in the nature around her. An amazing trip all round!   August 2021


A lovely wee retreat, very peaceful, a good base if that's what you want it, or just somewhere to get away from it all.   August 2021


The Mill of Tilquhillie is an absolute gem! An incredibly picturesque location itself, it is a perfect base from which to explore the villages and landscape of Royal Deeside. The quaint cottage was fantastic for a family of four with a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and relaxing sitting room. The private garden space was also much appreciated. Hosts were extremely helpful and friendly and useful local information was left. We highly recommend this unique listing!   August 2021


A lovely cottage in a peaceful setting. Well appointed with all necessary facilities. Would highly recommend.   August 2021


The cottage sits a short drive out of Banchory and provides the perfect location to explore Deeside. The cottage itself is well equipped as a home from home. I cannot recommend it highly enough as the perfect place to escape the stress and strains of daily life. We will definitely be back!   July 2021
