Tilquhillie Local Directions
Local directions to: Mill of
Tilquhillie, Tilquhillie, Banchory, Aberdeenshire, AB31 6JS, Tel: 01330
There are a
lot of properties in this area all with the same postcode AB31
6JS, so please read the local directions carefully as sat navs
can get a bit confused as you get close to the house. We are
clearly signposted and just off the main tarmac road so avoid
going down any unmade tracks.
At the traffic lights on Banchory High
Street, turn down the hill (Bridge Street). After about 150
yards, take the left turning over a very narrow single lane
bridge(the Brig o Feugh).
IMMEDIATELY after you have crossed the
bridge, take the right hand turning signposted Tilquhillie.
After about 100 yards, the road forks, and
you should take the left fork again signposted Tilquhillie.
After about 1.3 miles, take the left hand turning. It is the
only left turning, and has dotted white lines across it. (If
you reach a driveway to a house signed Marchburn, then you have
gone about 50 yards too far)
Mill of Tilquhillie is the first property on
the left, after about 50 yards. You should pass our pond on the
left. Our house is the creamy pinkish one in the background,
and the Mill cottage is in the foreground.

Crathes. About ½ mile after the border sign for Crathes, you

river, signposted to Bridge of Feugh, (you are now on the South
One mile from
this junction, past the border sign for Tilquhillie, you will
see a small grey cottage on the left, and a pale yellow cottage
on the right. Take the left hand turning immediately after the
grey cottage, (this is the first left after the Durris Bridge)
and, after a hundred yards, you will be at a crossroads. Go
straight over the crossroads (passing Knappach Mansion House on
your right), and after just under a mile, you will find us on
your right. The Mill cottage is in the foreground with our
house behind. The house sign is very clear and situated on the
left of the drive.
If you find
yourselves at a T – junction on a hill, you have gone too far.
Turn around and we will be the first house on your left.
If you do get
lost ring us on 01330 844616 and we can help you.
These directions assume that most people
driving from the South will eventually arrive on the A90 through
Perth and Dundee.
About one and a quarter hour’s driving after
passing through Dundee, take the Stonehaven/Banchory turn-off.
Follow the signs to Stonehaven/Banchory, which will bring you
into the centre of Stonehaven. At the traffic lights turn left,
BE CAREFUL HERE BECAUSE THE NEXT ROAD IS EASY
After about 50 yards, take the small turning
on right. It is signed to Banchory, but the sign is high up on
the left, and can get easily obscured.

Turn left so that you now have the River Dee
on your right, signposted to Fettercairn.
After one mile (you should pass the
Tilquhillie border sign), you will see a small grey cottage on
your left, and a creamy yellow one on your right. Turn left
down the side of the grey cottage. At the top of the road, you
will come to a crossroads which you should go straight over.
Continue down this road for about a mile, and
you will see us on the right. Our house is the creamy pinkish
one in the background, with the Mill cottage in the foreground.
If you reach a T-junction, you have gone too
far, and need to retrace your tracks. We would then be the
first house on the left.
If you have any difficulties, please ring us
on a mobile phone on 01330 844616 and, if we are here, we would
