• About Millbank

    This outstanding location offers activities and attractions to suit all ages and tastes, and the exceptional house is an ideal retreat after a day’s adventure.

    This stunningly designed property stands in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. It combines the feel of a whisky distillery with an Edwardian hunting lodge, with copper light fittings reminiscent of the still. Architect designed, the property enjoys panoramic views and the octagonal living space with ample seating, allows 360 degree views of the beautiful scenery. The wood burner which takes centre stage, stretches up to a glass cupola. Patio doors lead to a spacious outdoor seating area. The freestanding granite topped island can be moved around with ease allowing greater flexibility in the kitchen, whether cooking or prepping for a barbecue. Underfloor heating from an air source heating system ensures luxurious warmth all year round. The comfortable bedrooms on the first floor have oak floors, and the hanging hooks in the Edwardian style shower rooms are beautifully fashioned from deer antlers to give a quintessentially Scottish feel. The super kingsize bedroom has a double Velux window in addition to its large window, again making the most of the spectacular views.
    Surrounding the house is the scenery of the Ladder Hills and foothills of the Cairngorm Mountains. Nestled in the heart of the historic Braes of Glenlivet, Millbank is well situated for exploring the Glenlivet Estate which provides numerous walks, cycle routes and a ranger service. The world-famous Malt Whisky Trail is on the doorstep and winds throughout the picturesque lush Speyside countryside to many working distilleries including Glenlivet, Glenfarclas, Glenfiddich, Balvenie, Aberlour, Cardhu, Benromach and Dallas Dhu. All the famous names are here, and whisky lovers from all over the world come each year to the renowned Speyside Whisky Festivals held annually in May and September.
    The combination of soaring mountain peaks, wild moorland and tranquil lochs attract thousands of visitors every year, with something for everyone to enjoy in this protected landscape. It is one of the best places to spot a golden eagle, capercaillie, badger, Scottish crossbill, red squirrel, pine marten, water vole or wild cat to name just a few. There are ever changing, spectacular views from the summit of the mountain ridges, and with four out of five of Scotland’s highest mountains being located here, walkers will not be left disappointed. On the lower slopes, the forests contain remnants of the original Caledonian pine forest and include a rare kind of pine wood found only in Scotland and Norway.
    This unspoilt area offers countryside events, guided walks, mountain biking, canoeing, cycling, climbing, skiing, fishing, shooting or stalking. The Cairngorm National Park has a rich cultural heritage with castles, fortified houses and estates waiting to be explored. The Moray Coast is only an hour’s drive with rugged cliffs, caves, sheltered coves, quaint harbours and sweeping stretches of sandy beaches. Shop 7 miles, pub and restaurant 6 miles.

    Lovely well maintained house with excellent high specification appliances which feels very new. In a very tranquil location. Nearest town/pub/shop/restaurant is 6 miles away but as long as you have a car that should not be a problem. Views are fantastic and this house is excellent if you like silence and looking at the stars as there are very few lights to disrupt your views. I would happily stay here again

    The cottage was superb and in a beautiful setting with outstanding scenery. If you only wanted to chill and enjoy the views it was glorious. However to go anywhere it always took at least 50 minutes to reach anything.

    Millbank is your own personal slice of heaven in the Cairngorms. The house is absolutely beautiful - really spacious with excellent attention to detail that made this the best holiday home we've ever stayed in. The kitchen is very well kitted out and it was fantastic to have not only a massive laundry room but also a separate boot room (with underfloor heating, perfect after coming in from a long walk with chilly feet) with direct outside access. The bedrooms are all comfortable, with lovely bedding and fantastic en-suites (the roll top bath was a big favourite). There is no mobile phone signal and limited wifi (which suited us just fine!) but I understand from the owner broadband may be on the way and there is a landline but trust me you really wont miss the outside world. Honestly this house is so lovely I almost don't want to leave a review because I want it to always be available for our many return visits to come, but its just too good not to share. Did I mention the spectacular views all around, the visiting Oyster Catchers, hares and pheasants and the tranquility of drinking a cup of a tea in a comfy armchair watching the neighbouring farmer round up the sheep with his collie while a log fire crackles in the background? Seriously - heaven.

    Can’t fault this place. Clean and so well equipped. The house is spacious and beautifully decorated. The views from the property are amazing and give a real sense of seclusion. We used the property for a holiday which was primarily a relaxing holiday but Avimore and Inverness were both within an hours drive. Would love to revisit in the summer months. It should also be noted that I go into holiday rentals looking for faults and I always try and suggest something to the owners that might improve their property. This place in my opinion is faultless. We arrived with all of our provisions for our long weekend. We cooked some nice meals and sat around the wood burner. The space brought our group together as it was open plan in the kitchen/dining/living area. I very much hope to revisit. The host called us to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Thank you.

    We couldn't have asked for more. A beautiful "cottage" with all mod cons, fabulous décor, comfortable beds, hot showers and stunning views. Lizzie has been an extremely helpful and welcoming host and we have all wished that our stay could have been longer than the seven days we spent here and although on first sight the property seems remote, there is so much to do in the area. We have seen a couple of hares in the fields, deer in the road a few hundred yards from the house and red kites overhead, but the most fascinating has been the daily visit of a weasel to the garden. We absolutely loved our stay and although we didn't need to as the house was so lovely and warm, we did light the fire because, well, we just had to!
