Newmills


Fife

A village in W Fife, situated on the Firth of Forth between the Bluther Burn and Torryburn.

It looks out over Torry Bay and takes its name from an important mill that once stood on the burn here. Operated by monks in mediaeval times, the mill dominated the local grain trade. On its main street are the 19th Century castellated gateway, flanking arches and Gothic lodge that were once the impressive entrance to the former Torrie Estate.
