Time for a little visit to Click Mill, a fully restored water mill built in the early 1820s, and was operational until the mid-1880s.
The tradition of horizontal water mills in northern and western Scotland dates back to Norse times. The Click Mill at Dounby is one of the best surviving examples of this kind of mill. (Historic Enviroment Scotland)
Inside the mill, there is still the full machinery. These kinds of mills are quite genius designs, making the best of a low head and volume of water.
Click Mill is quite hidden in the landscape, might that have been intentional to avoid paying the landlord?
Burgar Hill Wind Farm
On my way back to Evie I stopped near the Burgar Hill Wind Farm, to enjoy the views over Orkney.
These windmills are huge!
Sands of Evie
The beach in Evie goes towards the Broch of Gurness – a wonderful place to take a walk and just enjoy the views and sounds.
View towards Rousay, may destination for the next day.
