A famous 200year old listed Mill, can be yours for a holiday break

Bobbin Mill is so lovely. The guest book shows it:

"The house is most beautifully designed. Each window appears to be placed with meticulous care to yield the greatest sight and sound from the surroundings"
"Lots of wildlife in the garden – a fawn eating from the tree. Scotland’s for me!"
"Accommodation was first class and the attention to the smallest detail"
"We have fallen in love with everything round here: the Deil’s Cauldron for yummy dinners, a red squirrel in the garden, red deer, buzzards, hares, pheasants, partridge in the hills, buying trout and veggies down the road. We could go on and on……"
"The design and layout of the house is spectacular, finished immaculately and very well equipped"

Christine Grace thinks of everything, thats why she gets a 4 star luxury grading for the Bobbin Mill.
"John," she says, "What do you think of this virtual reality tour of the Mill on our website?"
Wow, I had to get one for us. It looks stunning.
Our e-mail exchanges go all over the place, from the pros and cons of moving her change date to Friday so she gets the weekend with her family, to climate change and when am I going to give up flying, to folk music, her sister's singing career, her Fort William upbringing. She is a true Highland lassie. I've just got my jazz band to tell her about, but she is very nice about it.
But this Mill that she and her husband restored with such care is absolutely outstanding. It is in the Perthshire hills, near Crieff and Loch Earn. It sleeps eight people and is ideal for families sharing. In the low season you can rent the Mill for £640 for a week, and she will let you have it for shorter breaks. How would you find such luxury anywhere else for about £11 per person for a night?
