Preston Mill and Phantassie Doocot (NTS)

The oldest mechanically intact water-driven mill in Scotland. See and hear the mill in action and find out about the working life of a miller.

Since the 16th century there has been a mill on this site and the present stone buildings date from the 18th century. The conical roofed kiln and attractive red pantiled buildings make Preston Mill a popular haunt for photographers and artists, while the nearby millpond with resident ducks and geese provides the finishing touches to an idyllic countryside spot. The water-wheel and the grain milling machinery it powers are relatively modern and the mill was still used commercially until 1959. Exhibition on milling and display on history of Preston Mill and the people who lived and worked here. Phantassie Doocot, a short walk away, once held 500 birds. Obtain key from the Mill. Shop and picnic area.
