Norse Mill and Kiln, Isle of Lewis

(4.5/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Travel back in time to the age when Vikings ruled the Scottish isles at Norse Mill and Kiln. Instead of telling stories of pillage and destruction, these two restored structures represent a great example of ancient technology that has been used since the Iron Age. Thanks to its numerous streams, the Isle of Lewis was once the home of hundreds of mills. Today this historical mill and the adjacent kiln for drying the grain serve as monuments of this bygone era. From their stone walls and thatched roofs to the interiors equipped with authentic grinding equipment and restored fire pits, the mill and the kiln look just as they did hundreds of years ago. Park your car in the lot nearby. Use our Isle of Lewis vacation planner to arrange your visit to Norse Mill and Kiln and other attractions in Isle of Lewis.
