A Scottish Mill

From now to the closing date of 
The Landmark Trust Spring Raffle on May 25 I will give you a taste of the properties you could spend your £5000 holiday in.

Tangy  Mill,  Scotland

Sleeps  6

The Mill that we see today seems to have been erected in about 1820, but it probably replaces an earlier mill in a similar position. It was built to serve the big arable farms of the region. The L-shaped building is constructed of whinstone rubble laid in coarse lime mortar, and the dressings are of pinkish brown sandstone quarried form Kilkivan. The roof is of slate secured to 12" wide wooden sarking boards by wooden pegs known as ‘dolls’.
