Historic Scotland- New Abbey Corn Mill

 
History & Heritage
New Abbey

Due to reopen on Friday 15 April. We recommend booking in advance to guarantee entry.

Historic Scotland are working hard to gradually reopen the places you love while making sure the experience is safe for everyone. Find out more about reopening plans:

See New Abbey Corn Mill a beautifully-restored village mill in action and learn about how oatmeal, a staple of the Scottish diet, was once made. A mill was probably built here by the monks of nearby Sweetheart Abbey, but parts of the present building probably date from the late 1700s.

Admire the mill’s completeness – buildings and machinery are just as the last miller left them more than 65 years ago

Take in the sights and sounds of an age gone by when the waterwheel is turning and operating the machinery

Look for ducks on the millpond by the neat, whitewashed mill in the pretty village of New Abbey

Guided tours available. Ask on site for details
