Stanley Mills is a unique complex of water-powered cotton mills situated on a majestic bend in the River Tay.

Get hands-on in one of Scotland's most dynamic sites. Picturesquely sited on the banks of the Tay, Stanley Mills were founded to process cotton at the height of the Industrial Revolution in the 1780s, repeatedly adapted to changes in the textile industry, and finally closed in 1989.

There are superb interactive displays and games that help you to experience working life here. Find out if your fingers are as nimble as a child labourer’s – or whether you can match the business acumen of a mill-owner. Listen to the Gaelic poetry and stories of the displaced Highlanders who worked here after losing their homes in the Clearances.

Full details on admission prices and facilities are available on the visitor centre website.
