Description: Modern watermill (site of).

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1869 shows a building at the grid reference provided, together with the annotation, 'Corn Mill'. It was later used as a woollen mill.

The mill was powered by a waterwheel located on the west gable, and was served by a leat. Additional storage was provided by a small millpond. A tail race returned water to the Glen Auldyn river downstream.

The structure is now partly demolished and the site occupied by a domestic garden.
