Glen Wyllin Mill

Period: Modern

NGR Easting: 231572

NGR Northing: 490060

Description: Modern watermill.

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1869 shows a group of buildings at the grid reference provided, together with the annotation, 'Corn Mill'.

The mill stands just a few metres to the south of the river, which has an extensive catchment derived from the hills inland of Kirk Michael. The mill and adjoining miller's house together form a substantial structure, and have been converted and extended for domestic use.

The watersupply was derived from a 500m-long leat. The mill complex is protected by an overflow race, whilst the tail race is culverted under the yard in front of the mill and flows past the westerly gable of the miller's house back into the river.
