The first mention of the mill is in the Earl of Fife's diary for 1790, when he inspected the new mill on the Clunie.
The Granary makes a positive contribution to the streetscape through its traditional character, emphasized through its use of local materials and its simple appearance. Its setting at the heart of the village also adds to its contribution to the area's character. Historically mills were of major importance to any community as they provided the means to make flour for bread. The mill retains some of its original machinery, including the mill wheel and some of the gear mechanism. It was converted to housing in the late 20th century.
Also located here is an early 20th century turbine house, located to the NE of the mill in the fall of the land to the Clunie water. This made use of the lade cut for the mill and provided power to the Fife Arms Hotel.
