Attraction Information

Now a haven of tranquillity, in the 19th century Barry Mill was alive with the splash of the water-wheel, the rumble of the machinery and the smell of grinding corn. The mill was at the heart of this small rural community, providing work and social opportunities for local people. Until as late as 1982 the mill was still at work (the last of its kind in Angus) producing oatmeal and finally animal feed.

Barry Mill is a magnificent example of Scotland's industrial heritage. It is set in a secluded area beside the Barry Burn, with a working mill, ladeside and burnside walks, and guided tours.

Milling demonstrations normally take place on Sundays. There is an exhibition on the historical role of the mill and a delightful walkway alongside the mill lade.
