This 19th century meal mill works on a demonstration basis. Records show that a mill has occupied this site since at least 1539. The present building was rebuilt in 1814 following a fire. Barry Mill was the last water-powered meal mill to work in Angus, producing oatmeal until the late 1970s and animal feed until 1982. That year, damage to the mill lade resulted in the cessation of commercial operations.

Now the original machinery is fully restored and turning again. Milling demonstrations normally take place on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and for pre-booked parties. The product is used for animal feed as present hygiene regulations make it difficult to produce meal for human consumption. Displays highlight the important place the mill held in the community.
