Scope and Content Former miller's house for windmill, Kirkhouse Point, South Ronaldsay, Orkney This rubble-built structure was the house for the miller at the nearby turret post windmill. It appears to have had the house on the ground floor and a granary on the first floor. This view shows the building from the south east, with the church behind. Note the ruined external stair giving access to the first floor. The building was probably roofed with flagstone. The nearby windmill was of a type that seems to have been peculiar to Orkney, at least in a Scottish context. Five bases of such mills survive. This is the only miller's house surviving.
