Mid and later 19th century but probably incorporating earlier
core. Long rectangular 2-storey cornmill on sloping site
with long elevations E and W and with approach ramp at S
gable giving access to loft. Harl pointed rubble, tooled
rubble dressings. Overshot millwheel at E elevation served by
raised lade. Various doorways and windows in long W elevation
and small single storey lean-to extension. Tall octagonal
ridge kiln vent; slate roof.
INTERIOR: all machinery complete and in reasonable working
order; 2 sets of millstones, 1 pair dating from circa 1898.
A mill is indicated at East Grange in circa 1590 on map drawn
by Rev Timothy Pont; there may have been an even earlier one
serving the medieval Cistercian Abbey at Kinloss, East Grange
then being part of the abbey lands. The present building may
incorporate fabric of the mill known to have been standing
in 1746. East Grange mill ceased full-time working in 1975-6
due to the retirement of the miller but continues in partial
farm use for bruising cattle feed.
