Our Junior Tour Guide Amy took two tours today - one was a lovely couple all the way from Minnesota and the other was a local family. Amy is learning more about Woolmill at each session, and definitely looking the part in her Knockando Woolmill tweed skirt. Both groups thoroughly enjoyed their tours, commenting: "Fantastic tour, Amy was very good and knew a lot about the mill!" Now that the schools are on holiday Amy will be joining us more often, so keep an eye on the website to find out when when and how to book a tour.
Deep in the Spey Valley, Knockando Woolmill continues an unbroken 200 year old tradition, producing woven fabric on its historic looms.
Knockando Woolmill has always been at the heart of the local community. Listed as the 'Wauk Mill' in parish records from 1784, the mill has since maintained its traditions of spinning and weaving through generations of families.
All profits go to the Knockando Woolmill Trust to ensure the future of the Woolmill.
