Lower City Mills

Located on the south side of West Mill Street in the centre of Perth, the Lower City Mills comprise a former oatmeal mill which has been reused as the Perth tourist information office. Rebuilt following a fire in 1803, there was probably a mill on this site for many years before this. The building comprises three rubble-built storeys with a pyramid-roofed kiln at the southeast corner.

The Town Lade continues to flow below the building and for a time drove millstones via an internal water-wheel as a tourist attraction. Unfortunately this area is no longer open to the public. The Upper City Mills lie opposite and have been converted into hotel.
