Old mill to provide new facility for walkers?
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to go walking in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park may benefit from the restoration of an old mill building in the village of Killin.

The national park authority has revealed it has just allocated the last part of the funding needed to complete the Killin Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (Cars) and will use the cash to restore the Old Mill, which lies close to the Falls of Dochart.

Cars will use the cash to complete work on the building, whose wheel is in place, as well as finding a modern use for the structure.

This may include a visitor centre or accommodation for walkers, with the latter being something people may welcome after the youth hostel in the village closed a few years ago.

Killin makes an excellent base for Munroists, as it lies close to peaks like Ben Lawers, Meall Greigh, Meall Garbh, An Stuc and Meall nam Tarmachan.
