Horizontal water mill, with stones still in place. Visit RL & ME 28.8.2000

The present stones were from Dalbeg Quarry, and replaced smaller stones c. 1900. They were brought by horse & cart to Stornoway, and thence by boat to Calbost, and by hand to the mill from the shore.
c. 1902, the old stones were still there. They were then moved into houses in the village, where they served as bases for open fires.
