Gavin's Mill Community Project aims to turn around the fortunes of Gavin's Mill and transform it into a centre for community activity involving many

local residents in a multitude of ways.

Initially it will be a centre for Fairtrade produce and crafts, with a shop on site and sale-or-return facilities for organisations throughout the area. However, we have ambitious plans including the following:

  • Fairtrade café-restaurant
  • Healthy food centre selling locally produced vegetables
  • Heritage centre with local, relevant exhibitions
  • A working mill wheel to generate electricity for the centre
  • Other projects which may come on board as we develop this community resource

Gavin's Mill Community Project plans to lease the Mill from the existing private owner in the short term, with a view to buying and refurbishing it over the next five years to create a centre for community activity unparalleled in Scotland.  

Gavin's Mill Community Project is supported by Milngavie Community Development Trust, Milngavie Heritage Centre and the Balmore Trust.
