The Lint Mill offers 4 star gold B&B on a delightful traditional smallholding farm located between Edinburgh & Glasgow in the rolling countryside of Scotland’s Southern Uplands. We aim to be self-sufficient, organic & sustainable. We are in conversion with the Soil Association and we have a Green Tourism Gold Award.


Glasgow / March 2016

I came to The Lint Mill for three days as part of my academic sabbatical, with the aim of getting some writing done. It has been absolute heaven. A lovely breakfast, a day of writing in the cosy artist's studio - interrupted only by afternoon tea and cake - and then a fab dinner (accompanied by an ale or two). What more could one ask for? I'm heading back to Glasgow completely refreshed and rejuvenated - and with 18 eggs! Until my next visit.

Only our second visit, so lots more needed to get any sort of record! The last visit was a bit over two years ago and quite a few changes outside especially more hens, more turkeys and certainly more veg and fruit produce. What hasn’t changed though is the friendly care and devotion that is put into the B&B each and every day. Thank you Colin for being so considerate of Pat’s food intolerances - it makes such a difference when staying away from home.

So glad that we found The Lint Mill….very relaxing and an oasis of calm. Eaten so well and enough for a whole month! Lovely to have our own sitting room, real fire in the stove and both meals in the conservatory…Colin has been such a generous host.

What an inspirational place! The food was superb and our hosts a mine of information. We were so pleased to discover The Lint Mill and eat food that has come from the land we stand on.

Thanks Debby and Colin for a brilliant stay. For a very long time we shall remember The Lint Mill as one of the best places we have been. The place is warm and full of love and care for other animals and our beloved earth. As people who share the same affection for the environment, we feel very much connected. Many thanks to Colin who has put so much heart into making our stay so comfortable. We enjoy sharing our experience of organic farming. You have made it, it will inspire many more people who wish to lead a sustainable life. Be our guests if ever you come to Hong Kong.
