A converted 200 year old mill on the banks of Lawers Burn and overlooking Loch Tay.
With beautiful countryside all around and the magnificent Ben Lawers behind, Lawers Mill is a charming place to explore North Perthshire from. There are walks you can do right from the house itself suiting all levels of ability. Loch Tay itself is an easy 10 minute walk down the hill.
Freesat TV and high-speed wifi will keep you in touch with the modern world but, with a wood burning stove sitting on the original grinding stone and many of the mill’s workings still in the ceiling, this is a wonderful place to get away from it all.
Lawers Mill is a converted former grain mill overlooking Loch Tay in the small hamlet of Lawers in Highland Perthshire. The mill was built around 1800 and is on the banks of the Lawers Burn, which once drove the mill wheel. We carried out a full renovation in 2018-19 to bring it up to modern standards. It retains many original features such as the old mill workings in the rafters of the living room, natural stone internal walls, timber floors and the grinding wheel which is now the hearth.
The accommodation is set over two floors. The upper floor, accessed either by a flight of stairs or an external door, has the main living area and kitchen.
The newly fitted kitchen has exposed beams and all modern appliances – a Rangemaster with induction hob, two ovens, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine/tumble dryer. There is also a pulley rack suspended from the ceiling which is very handy for drying walking gear!
A galleried landing leads to the living area with natural stone walls and exposed beams. A log burning stove stands on an original grinding stone. Some of the original winding gear also lends to the atmosphere of the room. Sliding doors lead to a balcony offering wonderful views over Loch Tay. There is comfortable seating and a large dining table. The wall mounted flat screen TV has Freesat channels and a Bluray/DVD player.
Steps lead down to the 3 bedrooms: 1 king size, 1 double and 1 bunk bed room. There is a family bathroom with toilet and bath and a separate shower room with another toilet.
There is also a small snug downstairs with a television (also with Freesat channels and a DVD player).
The sheltered garden has a picnic bench and a wooden bridge across the site of the former mill wheel and down to Lawers Burn. There is a slide and swing in the garden too for children.
The water is from a private supply. It is tested regularly and perfectly safe to drink. There are two parking areas with plenty of space. We allow one dog to stay on request.
