Visit Mill on the Fleet in Castle Douglas
One of Dumfries and Galloway’s most important 18th century historical sites is that of Gatehouse and Galloway’s cotton trade at Mill on the Fleet, built in 1788 for cotton spinning and recently restored as a tourist attraction in the 1980s. Mill on the Fleet currently houses the Faed Gallery featuring exhibitions of local artists and craft makers along with the history of Gatehouse and its surrounding areas. The second story of the building houses the Anwoth Bookshop and café, where visitors can browse books while listening to classical music and enjoying a good cup of coffee.
