Full Description

There is a sluice gate at the eastern end of Loch Migdale built as part of the hydro scheme at Spinningdale house, where the owner, Mr Chance, was invoking a right related to Spinningdale Mill. The sluice gate resulted in flooding on lands belonging to A Murray’s grandfather, and he received compensation. However, there was an earlier sluice gate at this position, since it appears on a map of 1815. Perhaps this was for Spinningdale Mill or feeding the corn mill situated to the east. M Thomson remembers a metal and wood sluice gate which she used to clamber over. The current sluice gate is concrete, but the stopper no longer exists (D Findlay). <1>
