OutlanderFilm Location

Preston Mill is literally a living museum, and visiting is like taking a step back in time. The water wheel has a prominent scene in Season 1, Episode 12: Lallybroch when Jamie has to hide underwater to avoid a group of Redcoats while they question Clare and Jamie's sister Jenny.

The visitor centre has a small exhibition and refreshment area. There are picnic tables in the grounds and a small selection of hot drinks and snacks are available in the shop. Entrance to the mill is by guided tour only.
