Formerly a meal mill, but appearing on the 1st OS Map as a saw mill, powered by the Moulin Burn. Liddell thinks the mill was probably founded at the same time as Moulin Church which would date to the late 15th or early 16th century. In the garden of a modern house nearby are the remains of two houses, one of which was the miller's house. Thought to date back to Roman times, by the sixteenth century Moulin was sometimes known as Balmazie (Mill Town). The survival of the water wheel is remarkable and promotes the interest of this historic industrial property.
