Perth City Mills today 19th April 2013

Perth Lower City Mills today 19th April 2013 
Originally  a corn mill and a barley mill. It was latterly in use as an oatmeal mill and stopped production in 1953. The building now houses the Tourist Information Centre. This area was served by the town´s lade which brought water from the River Almond. This ancient mill was part of a complex which included an upper mill, a flour mill, a lower mill, an oatmeal mill and a granary and offices. The upper mill is an Hotel and the old granary is now flats.  The mill building includes a rare collection of early mill machinery over four floors, which was operational during its last use as a visitor attraction. The mill includes an unusually large mill wheel of 4m wide and 5m diameter which hasn't turned since a reduction of water in the mill lade following the flood prevention works undertaken in Perth.

Perth in History The Fair Maids House

The Fair Maids House Perth
The Fair Maids House is one of the most famous buildings in Perth due to the writing and imagination of Sir Walter Scott in his tale The Fair Maid of Perth published in 1828. Although the work of Scott  was fiction, the story was woven around existing historic buildings that existed at the time of his writing. The Fair Maids House was an important building as it served as the meeting house of the Glovers. Their motto which was: Grace and Peace, can still be seen carved above the door. Recently converted into the Scottish headquarters for the Royal Geographic society.
