Preston Mill

Preston Road
East Linton
EH40 3DS

Picturesque Preston Mill sits on the River Tyne which still drives the mill's water-wheel.

The conical roofed kiln and red pantile roof of these old 18th-century buildings hold a magnetic attraction for artists and photographers. The nearby mill pond with resident ducks and geese provides the finishing touches to an idyllic countryside spot.

Although the mill no longer produces grain visitors can see and hear the original working mechanism of bygone days and imagine the miller at work.

A short walk away is Phantassie Doocot, once a home for 500 birds.
