Millburn Cottage home swap

The cottage is our much loved second home and we look forward to sharing it! It was the original Mill in Melldalloch, outside the ancient village of Kilfinan. It is in the parish records of 1642 as Dougal Blacks House & Mill. Today the cottage has been upgraded by its artistic owners and has a quirky character. The dormer rooms in the cosy upper bedrooms retain original wood panelling & provide spectacular views to Loch Fyne & beyond.
The open-plan lounge has a wood burning stove with a modern vibe. There is a bespoke free standing galley kitchen off the lounge and a modern bathroom with walk in shower. There is a large conservatory to enjoy the scenic views. The garden is large and has a wonderful variety of flowers, shrubs and wildlife. The burn which originally powered the Mill has been redirected and is now a beautiful feature of the garden. The entire garden is fenced in and is ideal for pets.
