water-wheel.jpgBlair Atholl Watermilwatermill-tour-4.jpgl is one of Scotland's oldest working water mills dating back to 1590's. It continues to stonegrind oatmeal and flours for sale and for use in the mills own tea room.

The Blair Atholl Watermill is one of the last eleven working watermills still operational in Scotland
The mill worked continuously until 1929 when it ceased production mainly because it could not compete with the new industrial mills.

The Balir Atholl Watermill was then used as a store until 1977 when restoration work was begun by John Ridley with the help of the last millers' assistant who could still remember the old mill. John Ridley retired in 1993 and it then passed to James and Mary Bruce, parents of the current owner.

You can view the mill and see how wheat and oats are stoneground in the traditional watermill-stones.jpgway, which helps retain the nutritiontearoom-staff-sandy.jpgal benefits of the grain as well as giving the produce a delicious nutty flavour. The mill produces pinhead, coarse, medium and fine oatmeal and coarse wholemeal, wholemeal and bread flour. The flour and oatmeal are used in the home baking in the mill's tearoom as well as being available to buy in the mill's shop.
