Having it's origins in 1894 as a weaving mill, Linglie Mill was bought by Edward Gardiner in 1913. Gardiner's retained the mill until 1944, when Linglie Mill was purchased by Scottish Prepared Papers. Selkirk Town Council became the new owners in 1972. Linglie Mill was at this point split up in order to provide development units for new industries. In 1975 the premises passed to the Borders Regional Council.

Linglie mill continues to house small businesses.
