“Excellent location, not far from Ballater whilst in the country with lovely views.”

Crofts Mill is a tasteful modern conversion of an 18th Century mill constructed to current insulation and building standards. The conversion has managed to incorporate all the original features of the Mill without forming any new openings. The Mill is cut into the embankment of the Crofts Farm situated close to the junction of the Cairn Leuchan burn and River Muick. As recent as 1970 there was a weir across the River Muick which ran into a Lade which fed the Mill, remains of which are still visible.

Three storeys high and with five separate floor levels the accommodation is deceptively spacious with large well proportioned rooms throughout. Pets welcome.
