Preston Mill

Interesting
The picturesque 18C mill with its Flemish tile roof and block masonry is one of the few water mills still functioning in Scotland. It is allegedly Dutch designed: the humid oats were dried on plates in the conical oven, then sent to the mill via a slope to be sifted, crushed and milled. The large wheel was made in 1760.
