We stayed at Garden Cottage, which was very pleasant and spacious. Lovely garden outside too. Very grateful that Glen Tanar provided the stay as a prize. Lovely estate-and the particular highlight was the ranger Mike who took us on a ride of several hours, chatting about history, the estate and wildlife etc. Really enjoyable. Please pass on our thanks to... More

My brother got married here in Nov 2015! Absolutely magical. Surroundings, cottages, food, atmosphere... All just perfect & makes me want to live in Scotland! Thank you for a memorable weekend. Maybe don't stay in a cottage alone... Could be a bit scary (if you have an over active imagination) as very remote.

A three day break in West Millfield - quaint, quirky and just fantastic. Beautiful renovation of an old estate building to the highest standard. Log Burning stoves were amazing on cold, frosty evenings. The estate staff were fantastic. I cannot speak highly enough of this beautiful estate.
