The Loft is a cosy, romantic retreat for two in Perthshire.

The Loft sleeps 2 people in the roof space of the former store building – the rest of the building is the separate, self-contained Jute Store.

The whole apartment is light, bright and cosy and offers spectacular views across the Lornty Burn and mill weir, and to the River Ericht.  The extra height means the Loft also enjoys views of the tree tops surrounding Brooklinn Mill, and the hills beyond. In all it feels a little bit like being in a very special tree-house.

We are very happy to welcome 1 small to medium sized dog to stay at the Loft. With The Cateran Trail on our doorstep, Brooklin Mill is perfect for canine companions.


  • Do not allow your dog on the furniture or beds
  • If your dog barks or chews please don’t leave them home alone
  • Ensure your dog is fully house-trained.
  • Please be aware that there are open tread stairs leading to the Loft which may not suit some dogs.
  • We’re very happy to provide additional towels for drying doggy paws and tummies or after a swim in the river. Please just let us know.

Brooklinn Mill is made up of old buildings and has stone retaining walls in the outdoor areas, some uneven surfaces and is close to fast flowing water. Dogs need to be supervised in the outdoor areas and care should be taken when moving around. The shared garden is across the track from the Loft and is fenced and gated. There is a gap at the front of the building between the retaining wall and the stone wall of the building. Please do not let dogs play in this area.
