Strathaven Town Mill


The Town Mill exists to support the community of Strathaven and the surrounding area by offering rooms and halls for hire for events and exhibitions as well as promoting a wide range of events organised by our members.

The Town Mill was built in the 17th century in the shadow of Strathaven Castle, another well known historic landmark. Known throughout the county for years as a focal point for community gatherings and particularly musical clubs and groups, It has had many uses throughout its life, even housing the local tourist information office for a short time.
