Traditional water-powered mill put to work for first time in 30 years
Barry Mill has produced its first commercial order of milled oats since 1986. A new partnership with artisan food company Corbie & Cheip of Auchterarder has resulted in an order for bacon flavour porridge for dogs.
There's plans for more canine treats using flour produced at the Mill so keep an eye on the Barry Mill Facebook Page or pop in for more details.
Enjoy the splash of the waterwheel and the sound and smell of grinding corn in this picturesque 19th-century working mill. Milling demonstrations normally take place on Sundays. There is an exhibition on the historical role of the mill and a delightful walkway alongside the mill lade.
Now a haven of tranquillity, in the 19th century Barry Mill was alive with the splash of the water-wheel, the rumble of the machinery and the smell of grinding corn. The mill was at the heart of this small rural community, providing work and social opportunities for local people.
Until as late as 1982 the mill was still at work - the last of its kind in Angus - producing oatmeal and finally animal feed.Barry Mill is a magnificent example of Scotland's industrial heritage. It is set in a secluded area beside the Barry Burn, with a working mill, ladeside and burnside walks, and guided tours.
