Painting No. 114
The East and West Grain Mills at Forss were built around 1810 on opposite banks of Forss Water, where a tumbling waterfall provides power to drive two 16 foot diameter overshot water wheels - one for each mill. The mills are both traditional Caithness rubble-built with flagstone roofs, but whereas the West Mill has fallen into ruin, the Grade B Listed East Mill has been restored and sensitively converted into spacious self-catering holiday accommodation, overseen by the nearby Forrs Hotel, itself once a country estate house. The mill-stone, grain shoot, and other original machinery have been retained as part of the interior design. A smaller, gabled Miller’s House adjoins the main building. Mature beech woods cast dappled shadows over the rough-cast walls, and the sparkling water lures fishermen to the deep pools below the falls.
