Visited here today ( 7 / 7 / 2016 ) and found this a very old mill dating back to 1`6th century .Guide was very infomative . It amazes you how by turning a paddle wheel all the machinery works the whole mill . Worth a visit

Visiting Preston Mill was a most pleasant surprise, much more quaint than we expected. It was definitely worth the drive, wether you are an Outlander fan or not.

We visited the May bank holiday. Very interesting guided tour which our family enjoyed. Our guide grew up nearby and had lots of interesting stories!

Small but interesting place to visit near East Linton village. It's a lovely area with plenty of walks nearby. We had a very informative tour of the mill and kiln them walked to the doocot as part of a small circular walk. Well worth a visit.

We stop just to see the place and i have to say it was in love with it from the first moment. It was all closed and we didn't even do the proper walk around but just to see the very old mill from outside was enough for me. We will be back very soon to explore more and more... More

What a lovely location tucked down a small lane in East Linton. A working mill with a history. You must go round in a tour which takes about an hour. Guide was very knowledgeable which brought the mill to life for the 4 of us in the group Lovely surrounding area for a stroll. Not open all year round.

Oh my goodness what a hidden gem of a place this is! We had no idea what to expect but were very pleased and content with our visit. Hidden away behind a huge Farm land, the Mill looks small from the outside. However, the exterior structure of it is quite remarkable, especially the Water mill. The tour inside the mill... More

We were walking The John Muir Trail and we were fortunate to pass through this Scottish NT site. There were two guides available both of whom made the mill come to life. It is a working mill and it is full of interest. There is a small shop selling ice creams and hot and cold drinks and it is simply... More

We came here on a lovely sunny afternoon on a tour round this area which we had not visited before. This place is a little gem. We didn't have time to visit the Doocot though. We joined a tour led by ? S Miller who was a most excellent guide. We learnt all about the process and workings of the... More

A beautiful spot that most will miss as they drive on the A1. A Scottish National Trust site but there was no one on duty when we got there at 10am on a July Saturday. The walk to the dovecote is over the river and well worth the 30 minutes round trip.
