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.

There have been revisions to the machines in this shopping outlet. Two of the single die electric machines, machine 2 weaving loom and machine 1 William Wallace designs have been removed, leaving machine 3, the Bonnie Scotland machine.
But it is not all bad news as there is a new 4 die machine from ThePennyPress, these machine do roll well but have modest designs.

One of the Machine 4 pennies depicts The true story of a loyal Skye Terrier who remained by his master's grave for fourteen years.

Each penny cost £1 and the penny.

Machine 4 designs all have a beaded border:
1) (V) William Wallace, William Wallace FREEDOM text ...
2) (V) Piper, Edinburgh Scotland text...
3) (V) Dog on a plynth, Grey Friars bobby text ...
4) (H) Edinburgh castle, Edinburgh Castle, Scotland text

Machine 5 designs are exactly the same as machine 4
1) (V) William Wallace, William Wallace FREEDOM text ...
2) (V) Piper, Edinburgh Scotland text...
3) (V) Dog on a plynth, Grey Friars bobby text ...
4) (H) Edinburgh castle, Edinburgh Castle, Scotland text
