Finzean Water Mills

Door open days

14 September 2019 (1.00pm - 4.00pm)

15 September 2019 (1.00pm - 4.00pm)


The Finzean Sawmill site includes two water-powered mills, the Sawmill and the Turning Mill.  The mills date from around 1830s and are Grade A listed historic buildings.  The Mills and weirs are an integral part of the forest heritage and woodland culture of the Birse area and are particularly important as they have survived as a group in their original native pinewood setting and are still capable of operating.

Please note that for safety reasons the Mills will not be operating on the two days although there will be guides in site to provide an overview of the mills.

Further details can be found on Birse Community Trust's website:

The buildings are managed by Birse Community Trust which promotes the common good of the inhabitants of Birse parish and delivers wider public benefits.  The Trust manages land and buildings and a wide range of other projects on behalf of the local community.

Limited parking.
