Full Description

Graham Douglas notes that the mill machinery was installed in the early 1940s by James Reid of Dingwall. It has been out of use as a meal mill since the 1960s. The grain bruiser was in use at the time of survey and was powered by an electric motor. Munlochy Mill is depicted and named on the Ordnance Survey 6-inch map (Ross-shire, 1873, sheet lxxxix).
