Visit this charming rustic beauty of a forerunner to the Industrial revolution. The rural corn mill, still run today by the gentle flow of Barry Burn, was the ancestor to today's food preparation processes and a myriad of complex technologies that sprung from simple water-wheels, gears, pulleys and belts. Enjoy the tranquility of this renewable and sustainable approach to work & food in bygone days. Listen to the splash of the wheel and the rumble of the mechanics as the building shakes itself into life. Tours explaining the significance of these mills and telling some of the tales and stories of those that worked in and around these hubs of community are offered and bookings can be made to see flour being ground.

Visited the Mill whilst on a weekend visit to relations in Fife. Very interesting, the lady who showed us round could not have been more helpful and knowledgeable, it is well worth making an effort to visit.

Lovely little Mill tucked away in the countryside. We had the option of a guided tour or roam free. There was a trail for the kids, which they loved. It made it easier for my husband and I to have a proper look around. There...More

We visited on a Sunday and, by chance, that is the day when the mill can be seen working. Joanna, our guide, talked us through the way the mill works with huge enthusiasm. The miller wasn't there so we didn't actually see grain being milled...More

Friendly staff, small gift shop ranging from adult to pocket money items. Lots of parking and picnic benches. Option of a tour, or a wander about at your own pace. The mouse hunt to keep the kids occupied is a good idea. Stairs fairly sturdy...More

Beautiful setting with fabulous gift shop and lovely helpful staff who provided a guided tour and information to us and our inquisitive young boys. Really enjoyed our short visit, would like to come again and walk along the river.
