Probably late 17th century. Cylindrical speckled masonry tower, with remains of rubble vault extending to west. Segment headed doorways on north and south sides, small openings above south door. Pair of relieving arches above vault.

Statement of Interest

One of 12 surviving vaulted tower Windmills, a type rarely found outside Scotland. These comprise by far the oldest group of industrial buildings in the country. This mill is the least altered of the group, except for the untypically short mill at Hill House, Dunfermline,

hence the A listing. The Mill was a ruin at the time of the first Ordnance Survey in 1855.
