A "Kings Mill”: original meal mill last used as turning mill: 2-storey: rubble with crowstepped kiln: arch dated 1734

Bruce's Mill was a building, now demolished, in Mill Wynd, Falkland, opposite Glenvale and the Stag Inn. It was a water mill, fed by the Mill Lade and used for wood turning. Its site is now incorporated in Mill Green.

In the early 20th century it was tenanted by David Galloway, who used it to drive his wood-turning machinery.
