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

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating sites and places at the national level. These designations are Scheduled monuments, Listed buildings, Inventory of gardens and designed landscapes and Inventory of historic battlefields.

We make recommendations to the Scottish Government about historic marine protected areas, and the Scottish Ministers decide whether to designate.

Listing is the process that identifies, designates and provides statutory protection for buildings of special architectural or historic interest as set out in the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings which are found to be of special architectural or historic interest using the selection guidance published in Designation Policy and Selection Guidance (2019)

Listed building records provide an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building which has been identified by its statutory address. The description and additional information provided are supplementary and have no legal weight.

These records are not definitive historical accounts or a complete description of the building(s). If part of a building is not described it does not mean it is not listed. 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 legal part of the listing is the address/name of site which is known as the statutory address. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing. Even if a number or name is missing from a listing address it will still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing also applies to buildings or structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage (or land) of the listed building as long as they were erected before 1 July 1948.

While Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating listed buildings, the planning authority is responsible for determining what is covered by the listing, including what is listed through curtilage. However, for listed buildings designated or for listings amended from 1 October 2015, legal exclusions to the listing may apply.

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 1997 Act. 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 subsequent legislation.

Listed building consent is required for changes to a listed building which affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest. The relevant planning authority is the point of contact for applications for listed building consent.
