Lower City Mills in Perth, machinery for the barley mill that drives three pairs of stones

SIHS held its AGM in person on 21 November 2023 in Perth Lower City Mills to review the activity of the society during the early waves of the CoVid-19 pandemic, and to look ahead to a more active 2024. This will begin with our famous Burns Doo -the opportunity to hear and present short talks on Saturday 3 February 2024 in Stirling. Contact Mark.Watson (at) hes.scot if you would like to offer a powerpoint or show and tell, of 15-20 minutes.

We are very sorry to report the passing of our last chair, Bob McWilliam in October 2022. We are grateful for the energy with which he led the Society, and we seek a replacement. Could that be you?

We are also grateful to Perth City Heritage Trust for providing a very appropriate venue, and wish it well as the Trust considers future options for the mill. After a period of public consultation in early 2023 it will not seek to make it a regular visitor attraction, so visits such as ours will be special events.
