Minnigaff Mill ceased use as a meal mill circa 1900; it is marked as "disused" on the OS Map of 1907. The mill was used for storage until its conversion to 6 flats in 1992. According to Donnachie, the mill had a large cast-iron breastshot wheel; the lade is still traceable. Donnachie describes Minnigaff Mill as "a substantial mill of its period still in good structural order".
