Statement of Interest

Flax for processing as lint or linen was extensively

grown in Banffshire; bleaching field and lintmill exists

(in very poor state) near Deskford. The old mill at Lintmill

of Boyne was used as a cattle shelter (when the large

entrance was probably made) until rehabilitated as a house

in the mid 1980s.

Staircase inserted in old Lintmill circa 1985 was formerly

a secondary staircase at keith Hall, Insch.
