More information about Cardhu

Property information

Located in the small rural hamlet of Dallas, this stunning stone built watermill, Mill of Craigmill, has been sensitively divided into two discrete cottages of which Cardhu is the larger. The mill dates from the 17th century and has been lovingly restored in 2014 and lies in a tranquil area surrounded by fields and trees where normally all that can be heard is bird song and the gurgle of the adjacent stream.

The two cottages are totally independent of each other with separate parking, access and patio areas but can also be let together as one for a party of 6. Cardhu is the larger, upper floor cottage sleeping 4 and Aberlour is the lower cottage for 2.

Morayshire is home to many of the finest malt whisky distilleries, many with visitor centres and tours. There are fabulous beaches at Findhorn and Lossiemouth with good restaurants close by. The nearby towns of Forres and Elgin are good for all the necessary supplies but the main supermarkets also deliver to the area including Sainsburys, Asda and Tesco.

Cards is beautifully appointed and offers the couple or small party the chance to really appreciate what this very special area of Scotland has to offer.

Visitor comments

  • Mark, Sharon & Josh
    We had a fantastic week at this property. We were unsure of just having the top floor as we are used to having the whole house but this proved no problem as it was very separate and we both had our own outdoor space. The property has been recently converted and is of an exceptionally high standard. The beds are so comfortable and listening to the stream outside is so relaxing. Really close to lots of different things to do. The best beach (in our opinion) Findhorn is really close and Forres is very close with lots of shops and places to eat. Roy, the owner was very welcoming and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone. Very good value too!
