A beautiful walk away from the road towards the coast. The two buildings have been reconstructed but are empty inside. Well worth a short walk to stretch your legs though, the path is excellently maintained and the scenery gorgeous on a sunny day.

No visitor centre, no café, just a tiny car park and a quarter-mile trek to this absolute gem, beautifully maintained by a local community trust: clearly a labour of love. Spectacular setting by the mill burn, which is inevitably also popular with midges. Bring a torch to appreciate the interiors of the mill and kiln buildings. In our view, not... More

We visited the Norse Mill and Kiln mid way between the Arnol Blackhouse and Callanish. It is a small but very interesting attraction set about a quarter of a mile back from the car parking area so may not suit infirm visitors. The buildings have been recreated from the originals with newly thatched roofs. They sit, charmingly, by a peaty... More

Worth a look- interesting hut and a lovely short walk from the car park to the mill. Just off the main road.

Interesting insights into drying and milling the grain. We had a guide which was just as well as there was little information to be had at the site. It seems that little is made of the rich history of the area

We were on our way to the bridge to nowhere when we spotted the brown tourist information sign and decided to stop. sign said a half mile walk, but it only took about 10 minutes and it was a beautiful day. There are two wee blackhouses and you can get inside and see the mill, totally amazing. A great look... More

A short walk takes you from the road to the mill and kiln. It is interesting to trace the route of the water which fed the mill and to see the mill stones. The site was being restored during our visit but was still worth the walk.
