Milton of Kincraigie is a quiet farm house in a postcard-perfect location, ideal for families. Situated a mile or so above the village of Blair Atholl, and looking out over Blair Castle, Schiehallion and Glen Tilt, it is backdropped by the spectacular Beinn a'Ghlos.

The old farm stead: my grandparents moved here just after they were married (age 26). And in fact my grandfather (both now 86 and living in the village) still has his sheep on the fields and his "Old Fergie" tractor here.

The space

The old farm house is perhaps a little more "rusty" than "rustic" these days; the kitchen is quite basic, as is the bathroom. But what the cottage lacks in modern conveniences it more than makes up for in character. Nothing beats the joy of an open fire - warm your bath, your back and your wet boots - and open a good book. Upstairs is wood panelling, soft beds and linen, a silent night's sleep, and a starlit window.

Guest access

The cottage is fenced off from the working farm with its own private garden. There is however a hut close by, where you will find an axe and access to burning wood and coal. The cottage also backs onto the fender stream where you may also walk (and paddle! in summer) accessed through a gate to the side of the building.

Interaction with guests

My grandfather, John Burns, will be around every now and then to feed his sheep. He may also drop by the cottage to ask if everything is alright and he can be contacted in the village if there is a specific problem or worry. I will be in the village most weekends and contactable by phone, text and email.

Other things to note

There is no Wi-fi at present. There is an old TV with a basic sky package. It is a more "off-grid" holiday setting, but is a great change of pace.

This place is great, and the hosts were very nice also. If your looking for a secluded place with a fantastic view then this place fits the bill pretty well. Had a great time with family at lower Milton. A house suitable for walkers with many paths near by. The pictures and description are very accurate. Thanks for a great stay.

This was one of the greatest places we've ever stayed. The cottage is wonderful inside and out, the sheep farm and secluded location provide a great atmosphere, and the hosts are very friendly. They also have some great books on the bookshelf. We definitely hope to return. Blair Atholl is centrally located to explore much of the Highlands, and nearby Glen Tilt is one of Scotland's finest Glens.

Rural, rustic and relaxing. We had a lovely four nights at the cottage. On arrival it was very cold and you could smell the years of history from the furnishings but once we lit a fire and worked out how to best heat the house (whoever was up for a wee before we got up for the day would switch the heater on) it was perfect. The kitchen was well equiped and the bed comfortable (even more so when we discovered the eletric blanket) and the garden secure for the dogs. We would stay again.

Huisje ligt in een mooie omgeving. Verhuurders verhuren op hetzelfde pad nog een huis; dat heeft een nog mooier uitzicht. Alles in de woning is gedateerd, maar nog wel te gebruiken. De keuken was bij aankomst niet echt schoon. Er is een vaatwasser. Er ligt veel rommel in de kasten die van de bewoner zijn; papieren etc. De openhaard is echt geweldig! Voor de kolen en het hout moet je apart betalen. Ook voor de gebruikte elektra. Dit staat NIET in de omschrijving en zorgde bij ons vertrek voor een vervelende situatie. De verhuurders zijn erg vriendelijke mensen op leeftijd. Hun kinderen en kleinkinderen willen de verhuur voor hen regelen, met de nodige miscommunicatie als gevolg. Het kraan water kan niet gedronken worden(eerst koken). Het is een heel lief en schattig kleine cottage. Er staat dat je er met z'n zessen in kunt. ..vind ik persoonlijk wat veel. Vier personen is wel de max.
