Great project

Lovely piece of history that locals are trying to preserve with a thrift store in ground floor and an arts and craft place on second floor. Go in and support the community!

We were happy to spend money in the thrift shop on the ground floor of the old mill that houses this centre. Profits from the shop and crafts displayed upstairs go towards the renovation & hopefully, eventual upkeep of this building. It is worth supporting.

We stopped here for a wander round and talked to the two charming women there. The centre is a beautiful building staffed by local volunteers and the community is trying to raise money to restore the beautiful mill wheel. They have a stock of second hand books, clothes, toys, etc as well as postcards and local crafts for sale. Upstairs... More

This is a small but interesting place to visit. Enthusiasts are trying to re-open the water mill and the more people that visit the better this can become.

very odd little place-has a lot of history with the mill etc, but when you go in, it is like a second hand shop-selling all sorts of weird and wonderful stuff -we did not buy anything......

The building itself is worth a stop and look-see! There are some crafts and tourist information, as well as the famous Finion's Stones. Two lovey ladies were in charge and couldn't have been more helpful. This place has so much potential!

This place has to stay open, please support and visit. Only small but a part of the folklore and history, it must not be allowed to close down

This great little place closed it's doors for good at the end of October. It's such a shame that little gems like these close for purely financial reasons- they provide an excellent public service. The displays were extremely informative and we really enjoyed our time there. The downstairs area housed a shop and the local Tourist Information Centre which must... More

If you are interested in Scottish Clans and their history this is a must-see stop. It is a small museum but chock full of great clan information and memorabilia. We even tried on kilts. We appreciated the rich MacGregor history and artifacts. It is adjacent to the picturesque Dochart Falls in the small village of Killin – well worthy of... More
