It's a short walk over from the car park to the mill and kiln, which have been well restored. The information in the folder was very detailed but as there was no lighting it was difficult to see/read.

This wasn't well advertised, we found out about it when visiting the blackhouse and Arnol. It's a pleasant walk down to the site and there is lots of information in a folder about how the mill and the kiln were used.

Scenic setting. Short c500m from car park. Free to visit. Similar construction to blackhouse so could skip if short of time and have already visited the blackhouses

Fascinating complete water driven mill. 10 min. walk from the parking spot. Free of charge. No explanation near the mill.

Well worth the 10 minute walk from the car park. Very interesting but would be better with information boards detailing the history. Free entry.

Fascinating and well maintained and well worth the short walk from the roadside. It gives you a small incite of what was happening in Norse times!
