The Old Mill can now be booked instantly with Sykes Cottages.
Our highland holiday cottage was formerly part of a watermill at Craskie and has been extended over the years to provide cosy and characterful accommodation. We have sympathetically renovated the Old Mill and it now sleeps 3+1 in a double room, single room and a 4ft double sofabed. Located adjacent to our own home, but not overlooked, with a secure, private garden and fantastic views of the Loch. Our Eco Pods, also on site, have been carefully located to ensure they cannot be seen from The Old Mill and therefore do not interfer with the feeling of seclusion and tranquility our guests enjoy.
There is no mobile phone reception at Craskie so you really can escape from it all! For those that cannot live without internet there is unlimited Wifi and of course a landline.
All the water at Craskie comes from our own 76m deep borehole. The water is mineral-rich and requires no chemical treatment. This avoids the common highland problem of brown, peaty water and provides us with a natural, great tasting supply.
We have a fantastic array of Scotland's wildlife at Craskie, like this magnificent, wild billy goat who pays us a visit from time to time. Red deer are seen most days, with their spotty calves at foot in summer. October is the most exciting time to see the deer as they engage in one of natures greatest spectacles; the rut. Their roars echo around the glen day and night, it is an experience you will never forget. If you are lucky you may spot some of our more secretive residents, otters, badgers and pine martins. For birdwatchers there are buzzards, golden eagles, tree creepers, wildfowl and numerous songbirds to see. For a taste of the wildlife at Craskie take a look at our gallery.
The nearest shop is in Cannich village 3 miles away and is well stocked (they even do takeaway pizza!). There are Coop's in Beauly and Drumnadrochit and ASDA will deliver to Craskie.
