Archaeology Notes

J R Hume 1977.

Following a request from Historic Scotland, a new photographic survey of South Mill was carried out by RCAHMS in May 1999. This was to coincide with the exposure, during the mill's conversion into flatted dwellings, of the cast-iron frame and roof trusses of the mill itself.

Visited by RCAHMS(MKO), May 1999.
