About the Owner

Johnny and Lulu live with their three children in the neighbouring farmhouse. Johnny is a tree surgeon and Lulu coaches tennis. They both enjoy running The Mill. We have an extra two beds, if the party @ The Mill needs an extra two people. A four page article was in the Scotsman on November 2009, to read more about them and why they converted The Mill. 2011/12 we won an award for best converted work on an existing builiding.
