Upper Kennerty Mill is nestled away in a valley to the west of Aberdeen in Peterculter, in an idyllic private rural setting. This category B listed building has undergone a complete restoration and conversion project transforming the building into a luxury sustainable home, with great consideration and respect to its history and setting.

The mill building faced an uncertain future following a catastrophic fire in 2006 which destroyed its roof and severely damaged the interior and historic mill works. Several years later the building was acquired by the present owner and restored by award-winning architect Annie Kenyon to its former glory.

The original building looks much as it would have when it was built in 1838. A new architecturally striking extension has been added and the rest of the build has been designed to sympathetically integrate the many historical features which have been lovingly preserved and restored, including the water wheels, lade bridges and water gates.

Set in around one acre of grounds, its position on the banks of Culter Burn offers around 150m of river frontage and is a haven of peace and tranquillity, attracting various wildlife including otters, red squirrels, ducks, red kites and lots of garden birds. At the end of last year over forty salmon and sixty sea trout negotiated the weir in the garden.
