Description

Earlier 19th century. Horseshoe-plan weir. Bull-faced coursers, flat coping stones. Intact sluice with machinery at centre and at N leading to mill lade.

Statement of Special Interest

The weir was built as the mill dam for Duntrune Mill (owned by the Stirling Grahams of Duntrune House), known to have been in operation from at least 1826. The present owner of the now ruinous mill (Mr Stewart) has a photocopy of a line drawing of the mill with an inscription suggesting it was established by Peter S Gray in 1826. The mill has been a grain and saw mill and in 1904 a turbine was installed (still extant, ?J H Holmes and Co, Newcastle-upon-Tyne?), said to supply electricity to Duntrune House, Craighill and Highbroom. Installation of electricity at Duntrune House was approved in 1904. There are various references to the mill in the Graham of Duntrune papers, wherein there may also be reference to the weir. The bridge to the E is listed separately.

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 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.
