“Great displays, well described and good food in the tea room.”
Reviewed April 20, 2011

This is a "hidden" gem; hidden because it is easy to drive past and think it isn't worth a stop - but it is. The mill has a fascinating history and the display rooms are full of interesting stuff that tells a story. That story covers the history, agriculture and industry of Ayrshire in an entertaining fashion. Everything is well described so that you don't end up looking at a load of meaningless junk. If you are puzzled the staff are friendly and helpful. There are also interesting activities for children. As a bonus the tearoom serves good, homemade food and the mill stand on a lovely river.
