The Norse Mill and Kiln is worth turning off the road for. It is free and unguided but gives an insight into farming life in a time long gone by. One can sit on the rock seats inside the mill, that have been there since...More

These are restored buildings one a kiln for drying and another a water driven wheel and stone for grinding. Its not obvious in what soil barleycorn grows unless its among rocks! However climate has changed and early technology is always interesting. Clearly explained by signs....More

We decided to visit this just as we were driving past, and very pleased we did. It's a short walk from the car park area to the restored buildings which you can walk round and enter for free.

Just off the main road...400m hike.. yet well worth the visit; if you want to photograph the inside of the Mill you need a flash!

A really sweet and well regarded little location which has been restored by the Norse Mill Society. Really cute pair of little huts with a lovely walk to it (about 3/4 mile). Pretty location on tiny babbling brook. However the contents of the huts is...More

It's a short walk over from the car park to the mill and kiln, which have been well restored. The information in the folder was very detailed but as there was no lighting it was difficult to see/read.

This wasn't well advertised, we found out about it when visiting the blackhouse and Arnol. It's a pleasant walk down to the site and there is lots of information in a folder about how the mill and the kiln were used.

A short pleasant walk off the road (there is a parking area) with nice views. Interesting buildings, with the 'workings' still inside. An interpretation board would be handy, but it's more or less self-explanatory. I actually liked this site better than the blackhouses - less...More

Scenic setting. Short c500m from car park. Free to visit. Similar construction to blackhouse so could skip if short of time and have already visited the blackhouses
