Long rectangular, rubble-built mill, part of which may date to 1671, altered in 1744, now a house. Single storey with slightly taller addition to NE, which according to the previous list description was probably built in 2 stages, later 18th to early 19th century. Mill wheel on SW wall. It is of local importance as a former water mill, incorporating fabric from the 17th and 18th centuries. Situated due W of Lake of Menteith, at the heart of the Malling estate, the mill is located immediately to the NW of Malling Steading (see separate listing), which has a 19th century horse mill. This mill predates the horse mill, and together they show the evolution of agricultural power sources from the 17th to early 20th centuries.

Principal (SE) elevation: single storey range to left with segmental-arched entrance with dated keystone 1744, various window openings. To right, taller addition with shallower roof pitch. Glass-roofed lean-to projection, dormer window with raking roof breaking eaves above, single window to right. Single window to NE return.

Side (SW) elevation: mill wheel with ashlar-faced wall behind, painted render above. According to previous list description there was a small opening to right with lintel dated 1671 and initial W, not seen at time of resurvey (2004). 2 new openings to either side of wheel. Mill lade carried on a tall masonry wall.


Access not obtained at time of resurvey (2004). According to the present owner, the remains of wheel gearing were removed when it was converted into a house in the early 1980s.


Squared rubble with dressed stone margins to openings, painted render to SW elevation. Pitched grey slate roofs with stone coping to gables. Stone finial to SW gable apex has been lost in the conversion. Modern timber glazed doors and modern timber sash and case windows. Rendered stack to rear added at time of conversion.

Statement of Special Interest

Malling Mill has since been converted to a house which resulted in the loss of internal fabric (including the wheel gearing) at the time of conversion.

Malling Mill was originally part of the Malling estate, owned by the Duke of Montrose. It appears on James Stobie's 1783 map of Perth and Clackmannan. The Ordnance Survey Name Book (1898) describes Malling Mill as a threshing mill that 'was formerly used as a corn mill'.

About 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 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.

The only legal part of the listing is the address/name of site. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing and if a number or name is missing from a listing address it may still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing can also cover structures not physically attached but 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. 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 advises on the need for listed building consent and they also decide what a listing covers. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
