Description

Mid and later 19th century but probably incorporating earlier

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

INTERIOR: all machinery complete and in reasonable working
order; 2 sets of millstones, 1 pair dating from circa 1898.

Statement of Interest

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.
