We arrived before the opening time of the mill on a Sunday but access was open and we had a lovely walk along through the grounds and along the mill lade. On our return the reception area was open and we had a chat with the very friendly staff. We were dissapointed that there was no milling demonstration planned that... More

We were given a bit of the history surrounding the site. Records show that there has been a mill on the site since 1539. The current mill was rebuilt... More

We walked from the Carnoustie Golf Hotel to Barry Mill where we were greeted by the miller. We gladly accepted his offer of a personal tour complete with commentary round the mill - he was very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed his enthusiasm for the mill. Beautiful location. Well worth a visit.

Amazing look at early 19th century life in the rural areas. Excellent tour of the mill with a demonstration of milling . A real look at how hard people worked creating a simple but staple food group for many. Educational and fun. Things like this need preserving or the future so pay it a visit. Join the nts and there's... More

Have passed this many times and so glad we decided to spend an afternoon there. We were greeted by Peter Ellis who was fascinating and spent a good bit of time explaining about the mill and the history. We were given a guided tour by Jenny who was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great afternoon. Nice walks as... More

A little bit off the beaten track, but well worth the effort, Barry Mill is a fascinating building, an din a beautiful location. We visited on a weekday, so had the place to ourselves for much of the visit. We were given a personal tour by guide, Carolyn Peters, who is an absolute encyclopaedia of information about mills and their... More
