Wool production has taken place at the site since at least the eighteenth century, and the surviving buildings house a number of pieces of historic machinery which are still in operation. It was designated a Category A listed building in 1995, still operates as a working mill, and is open to the public from April to September.PutKnockando Woolmill into our Aberlour trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

We were driving around and stopped in for a look and it was a wonderful surprise. The information given on Scottish Kilts, patterns and wool was great. The gardens were very nice to walk around in... more »
Well worth a visit. While sad to see the demise of these mills this is very interesting in a great scenic location. In particular see the video of restoration and the weave process, the cafe, the lady makes all her yummy cakes and finally the small shop. The shop is limited and could do more but is 5 star quality at fair prices.
Knockando Woolmill is a wonderful place to visit - it is a real step back in time and a glimpse of Highland Life as it used to be. It is not every day you get the chance to see how life used to be in the Scottish Highlands. I can certainly recommend the tour and the cafe and the shop make your visit even more worthwhile!
