Knockando Woolmill, Aberlour
(4.7/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Deep in the Spey Valley, Knockando Woolmill continues an unbroken 200 year old tradition, producing woven fabric on its historic looms.

Knockando Woolmill has always been at the heart of the local community. Listed as the 'Wauk Mill' in parish records from 1784, the mill has since maintained its traditions of spinning and weaving through generations of families.

It is steeped in local history, and preserves strong relationships with the farms, land and people of the area.

  • 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.
