New Abbey Cornmill: Entrance and Exit

The cornmill in New Abbey is in the care of Historic Scotland. The present building dates from the 1790s and some adaptations were made in the 1850s. The mill was placed in State Guardianship in 1978 and opened in 1983.

The visitors’ centre is on the ground floor of the mill. From here you can be shown the mechanism of the mill or view the mill wheel itself.
