Lornty Mill

The smallest of all the mills.

This mill stands about 300 yards up the Lornty Burn, a tributary of the River Ericht on the Blairgowrie side of the river. It seems to have been in size and production the smallest of all the mills which existed in Blairgowrie and Rattray in the 19th century. In 1840 the number of hands employed there totalled only 29, of whom 21 were women.

The mill was built in 1814 by Mr. David Grimond, one of the founders of the linen trade in Blairgowrie and originally a millwright, on the site formerly occupied by a lint mill and then a snuff mill.
