Lower City Mills, Perth
Perth & Kinross
Home to Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust, look behind the scenes into this water-driven mill. The mill, which once procesed oat and barley, was in use from at least 1715 until the decline of provincial milling in the 1960s. It houses rare working machinery and the largest working waterwheel in Scotland!
Look around the mill on your own or come along for a free guided tour (twice daily). Try your hand at grinding on our quern stone or get creative with our colouring activities. Spot all the 'mini millers' hidden around the building to win a prize!
Guided tours at 12pm and 2pm, both days.
