  • This traditional wool mill is off of the beaten path in some absolutely gorgeous countryside. This place is like a living museum: there are several different looms here from varying technological eras...  more »
  • This wee old mill is definitely worth a visit. It is marvellous to see the materials being woven on very old looms. The shop and the cafe are wonderful. The goods for sale are not cheap but very much ...  more »
  • The country side around the Mill is just gorgeous. It was really interesting to see the buildings, learn the history and see a loom in action that has been working since the 1800's. Well worth a stop....  more »

  • My favorite stop in Scotland from a day tour in the area. Very friendly, passionate, and knowledgeable staff. Not an overrun "tourist" stop at all. GORGEOUS gardens and historic buildings. If I come back to Scotland, this will definitely be on my list of places to visit and support. They put an extraordinary amount of knowledge into each piece they make! Worth every penny.
  • Wonderfully restored working wool mill. Well worth a visit. Really friendly staff, great café.
  • Brilliant place for a visit, machinery still being used for production that is 140+ years old, shop full of quality products and a small café with most of the menu produced on site fresh each day.
  • Great location really interesting even for 5 year old and good food in cafe. Well worth a visit.
  • Great restoration, lovely shop & good light lunches and cakes. Staff excellent.
