Balmoral Grist Mill

A working grist mill from 1874. Discover this three-storey mill tucked away in a wooded gorge on Matheson’s Brook. See grains being ground, sifted and turned into flour just as they have been since Alexander McKay opened this mill in 1874. Feel the mill in action and hear the whir of wooden gears as shafts and pulleys turn the original Scottish granite millstones. Bring a picnic and linger in this shady and peaceful place. Hear the mill stream splashing as water tumbles over the dam. Ramble along the Christine MacDonald Walking Trail as it winds along the brook. Find out more at the official website
