Take care all and stay safe.

Mill of Garlyne

The Mill of Garlyne was a grain mill, worked by water power from the Aultmore burn, used for converting the oats crops of the local farmers to oatmeal.

John McGregor About 1749 -1836 was Master Miller at the Mill of Garlyne.

Malcolm McGregor was born at Garlyne  on 12 December 1774 and baptised on 24 December 1774. 

The last of the millers were several generations of the Gordon family. Barbara Gordon, daughter of the last miller, died in November 2019 aged 94, having lived for almost all of her life in the cottage beside the mill

Jane Lilley(nee McCauley)recalls her father speaking of taking  cartloads of oats from their farm at Letttoch across the moor to the mill up to  the 1940s

 The building has now been quite tastefully converted to a holiday home, named –  The Maltings,
