We visited with the primary objective of purchasing some of the unique stoneground beremeal. On arrival we decided to do the guided tour available. The tour was incredibly interesting and involved the current milling process and the long history of the mill. In addition, the tour was conducted by the current miller himself, who is clearly passionate about the entire enterprise. We did purchase the beremeal, and returned a couple of days later to buy some oatcakes and biscuits. Looking forward to using the meal to make some of the recipes available in a small book, (which can be bought at the mill or from local bookshops. This is not a museum, it is a genuine working mill. Well worth the visit, and I would recommend this to people of all ages, (providing they can climb the stairs)!

If you want a truly old working mill, this is your place Sue and Alistar give a great tour. Ali is the miller and has been for the past 2 years. He really knows the mill and how to operate and maintain it. If you want to see the mill actually grinding the grain you need to visit in the winter as that's when the milling happens. Ask Sue if she has any of her home made shortbreads to sample. They're absolutely lovely

Really glad you enjoyed the tour Jim. Unfortunately when we're milling in the winter we're closed to visitors. Ali needs all his time for the actual milling, and we take the safety fences down - health and safety you know. Lucky you getting to taste Sue's shortbreads.

We visited after seeing a recommendation in a guide book. A lovely old working watermill, the only one milling Bere, an ancient variety of barley. After a pleasant chat with the Miller, we were shown round by a lovely young lady, a 6th former who ha been working there over 2 summers. We were very impressed by her knowledge and presentation, and her interaction with us. Being non technical I was full of questions. You will learn everything about how the millwheel works, the stages of grinding and milling the Bere and much more. A thoroughly interesting tour for all ages and well worth the entrance fee and a tip for the guide. Isobel and Hamish muirhead

All the family were impressed by this working mill and a great tour guide who showed us round. We learned lots and came away with some flakes and flour.

This was one of, if not, the best mill tours I’ve been on. The staff member who took us around all three floors was very knowledgeable and let us turn the waterwheel on. Nearly everything is original except for wear and tear items that have had to be replaced. Fascinating place. Sadly, we did not get to see Cedric the cat🙁
