Barry Mill is a working Category A listed watermill in Barry, Angus in eastern Scotland. It is owned and operated by the National Trust for Scotland as an educational tourist attraction. Situated in a secluded area beside the Barry Burn (the watercourse, which provides its power), the mill lies about half a mile north of the village of Barry, near the town of Carnoustie. It is a three floor building, containing a meal floor (basement), a milling floor and a top (or "bin floor"). A site for several mills since at least 1539, Barry Mill was commercially operational until 1984; it was then restored, and has been operated by the Trust since 1992. It was threatened with closure in March 2009, but has remained open due to local support, and the securing of external funding.Our Carnoustie road trip planning site makes visiting Barry Mill and other Carnoustie attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Interesting & scenic hidden gem on the doorstep. Staff friendly, engaged & knowledgeable. Brochure excellent. Return visit needed to enjoy the walks which is why I took out annual membership for the NTS during my visit today. (thanks for the help!)
A personal guided tour was very informative. The staff were very welcoming.
