555 Castlehill , The Royal Mile
Edinburgh, Scotland, EH1 2ND
Phone: 0131 226 1555
Occupying the building that held the old Castlehill reservoir, this establishment is like an extensive complex of concessions where you can do everything from grab an ice-cream to snack in a conservatory café, have your picture taken in full Highland dress or simply buy a kilt. The weaving mill itself is run by Geoffrey (Tailor), a respected Highland outfitters. As well as being a working mill, this is a Victorian building bang in the heart of tourist country, and it can get pretty hot and busy in summer.
