On the left, one of the best images of the position of Lintmill, in the field opposite "Morton's Garage". The river has taken away most of the area where the building was. It is still in living memory that at one time you could take a horse and cart along the side of the house with ease, between the house and the river. The river as an estimate has eroded to somewhere near the middle chimney. There are still ruins on the site to this day. The right hand image was dated 1905, and therefore dates the photograph before this time. The people in the photo are the Harrison family, that of Terry and Hughy both contributors to this web site.

 An idea of the location of Lintmill. The building in the background is the Greyhound Inn, across the river. The children in the photograph are Margaret Fell (Dalgain farm), unid, Jean (Girvan) Cunningham (middle), May (Muir) Joss, Elsie McCombe.  All that is left is on the right, taken in 1998. The area is a little overgrown, but the Greyhound building is still seen

Two images of the area from the air, showing the old site of Lint Mill. It stood where the ploughed field meets the grass.

A view looking up the river from Lintmill corner, with the school on the left.
This view must have been much more spectacular when the river was in full spate, charging towards the house.
