Accessing Scotland's Past Project

The 1972 1:10000 map of the area around Scalan shows a system of water channels and associated features which once served the water-powered mill at the south steading at Scalan.

A branch of the Slochd Burn was dammed to form a mill pond, from which the flow of water was regulated through a sluice gate. When opened, water was directed down a lade or channel to drive the mill wheel.
