Well worth a visit, I had been previously but took my husband as I knew he would be interested - he LOVED it! The National Trust for Scotland have done a wonderful job in saving this mill. Special mention has to go to the manager Peter Ellis who is so passionate about the mill and also very interesting. We had... More

I visited this mill last summer. Although I wasn't initially particularly enthusiastic about this visit, I found it to be extremely interested and enjoyed my afternoon there. This was mainly due to the staff, in particular the nice, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, who showed us around the mill. It was evident that he had a great knowledge of the mill,... More

It was really interesting seeing round this old mill. The chap responsible for the workings of the mill was very interesting and information, clearly knowing a lot about the history and running of the mill. On Sundays, subject to numbers, they do milling demonstrations, which we'd like to see another time.

This is a nice place to go for a quiet Sunday afternoon! The mill is very interesting and it's good to see things from a time gone by in working order! The walk around the mill is very nice and a great escape! But beware the swan guarding the path! Wouldn't budge for us so had to turn back (... More

We were the first to arrive on a Monday lunch time (its open Fri-Tue not Thu-Mon) and like others here we were greeted by Peter who suggested we visit the Weir first and then make our way back to the mill. It only took about 1/2 hour for the walk but we managed to spot a Kingfisher en route. Peter... More

Worthwhile going to see. You just sometimes don't know what is on I your own doorstep. Miller was very knowledgable. Great interaction with all there.

Barry Mill wasn't my idea of a family day out, BUT I went along with the family just to see what it was all about . . . We arrived a bit early but staff/manager Peter greeted us and told us we were welcome to explore the gardens/pond/orchard until opening time . . . An offer we took up. On... More

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 lucky with the weather as our visit was over the Easter weekend. We had a personal guide which meant that you could ask as many questions as you wished. 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
