Description

Pre 1684. Windmill. Vaulted tower type. Circular tower. Rubble. Corbelled crenellated parapet with rubble merlons, added later. Doorway to E and W, partly blocked to W.

Statement of Special Interest

Logan Windmill was a grain mill. In circa 1684, Symson mentioned that "the Laird of Logan hath lately built an excellent windmill" (quoted in Donnachie, pp 40-41). The tower is marked on the OS Map of 1847-48 as "Logan Windmill (in ruins)". A former meal mill, now gutted and used as a farm building, is located to the south-east; it was probably built to replace the windmill sometime in the late 18th century.

About Designations

Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The statutory listing address is the legal part of the listing. The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. For information about curtilage see www.historicenvironment.scot. Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
