Barry Mill gearing up for spring

Preparations are underway at the National Trust for Scotland’s Barry Mill near Carnoustie as the team get ready to re-open for the visitor season once again.

The A-listed mill, which is one of Scotland’s few remaining operational water mills provides visitors with an unrivalled opportunity to see how grain was milled in days gone by.

This summer, there will be improved and re-designed information for visitors put in place.

The search for an apprentice miller is also underway and it’s hoped that a successful candidate to learn the skills needed to care for and maintain the mill, as well as share its history with visitors will be found soon.

Property Manager Peter Ellis said:

“The mill is a fascinating part of Angus’s industrial heritage and a great place for the family to visit. It’s one of the few places in Scotland where visitors can get such an up close and interactive experience of milling, all carried out by a fully qualified miller.”

The mill is set in picturesque surroundings which are a haven for wildlife. A family of mute swans have been nesting onsite for years.

The mill is planning Easter fun for all the family this year, with its annual duck race. On Sunday 8 April, pop along for races, milling demos and egg-painting too.

Barry Mill is open from 1 April to 31 October on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from noon until 17.00, 13.00 to 17.00 on Sunday.
