This place is like something out of LOTR. Seriously go. It's beautiful, and whimsical. The little Mill and Mill pond then the river and bridge then the doocot. If you're in the area, highly recommend you visit. East Linton beside for lunch or Tynningham.

We love taking visitors to Preston Mill as the mill and its shape are so unusual and the history of it is very interesting. It is nice to walk around the area that the mill is located in. It is certainly one of the sights...More

Although the mill is closed at this time of year, please don't let this put you off visiting. The buildings are as attractive as I expected, and the main mill doubly so. With its colourful, pointed, skewiff roof and tiny set of rough stone steps,...More

An old watermill with a nice space around the river for nice walks. The mill itself is old and a very nice spot to take pictures.

This was the first stop on our holiday, and we couldn't have made a better choice. The staff who worked here were so friendly and informative that even if it hadn't already been a neat (and scenic) spot to visit, they would have made the...More

We didnt actually pay to go in to the mill as it wasn't open on the day we were there, however we have it on our list to visit when return, its was such an intriguing shaped building and is in such a pretty setting,

Took grandchildren to see a bit of history. They enjoyed seeing how the water wheel worked to grind flour in times gone by. A short walk away is the Doocot. A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours, very peaceful

A lovely and interesting place in its own right, but also an Outlounder filming location. Staff were really lovely and helpful. Our main interest was as Outlander fans and we were welcomed and given lots of really interesting info.

Saramaddalena, the inside of the exhibit hall was used in Outlander, too. The docent was particularly helpful in pointing out where they filmed and there were pictures in the exhibit of some of the filming. Besides the mill... More
