Preston Mill, one of the oldest meal mills in Scotland, lies close to the River Tyne - just downstream of East Linton (East Lothian).

This extremely photogenic complex comprises of three main buildings: the conical-roofed kiln, and the red pantile-roofed mill and miller's house. There has been a mill on the site since the sixteenth century, but the present kiln, mill and house are from the 18th century. The mill pond, complete with resident ducks and geese, completes an idyllic picture.

During the main tourist season, there are regular guided tours of the mill and the kiln, where visitors can see the machinery working.

Preston Mill has for many years been a very popular subject for artists and photographers, which is no surprise for those who see the attractive combination of mill wheel, pond and remarkable kiln: it makes for a very striking, unusual composition.

There is a car park.
