An old watermill with a nice space around the river for nice walks. The mill itself is old and a very nice spot to take pictures.

Took grandchildren to see a bit of history. They enjoyed seeing how the water wheel worked to grind flour in times gone by. A short walk away is the Doocot. A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours, very peaceful

A lovely and interesting place in its own right, but also an Outlounder filming location. Staff were really lovely and helpful. Our main interest was as Outlander fans and we were welcomed and given lots of really interesting info.

Preston Mill was a neat view back into history. Understanding the process of how they dried and milled the grain was interesting. We arrived about 30 min before closing. There was no other tourists around so the guide gave us an abbreviated tour. The cultural...More
