Caithness Water Mill For Sale
Believed to be one of the best examples of a Caithness mill, this three-storey, L shaped water mill dates from the early to mid 19th century. Sadly it is now need of a little tlc. It's on the buildings at risk register in Scotland and is up for auction seeking to find a new owner willing to bring it back to its former glory.

Built from rubble and slate Auchingale Mill is set in approximately 1.5 acres of land, on the outskirts of the village of Watten, in the far North East of Scotland.

From a distance, it looks like a small castle and could be developed into a spacious family home as it has over 400sqm of floor space. Conversion would be subject to planning permission but some work has already been done including roof repairs and Historic Scotland has given preliminary verbal approval to the restoration plan.

Services are in place - electricity, artesian well water (under natural pressure) and the drainage system. Even telephone and broadband have been connected. There are rights in the title to restore Mill lade which could be made to generate its own electric power.

Inside, the mill workings are largely intact including the wheels and the property is full of character with many original hand cut wooden beams.

Truly a grand design project for someone with vision.
