Preston Mill and Phantassie Doocot

One of Edinburgh’s most picturesque, yet little visited historic sites, the 18th-century Preston Mill and neighboring Phantassie Doocot have received a surprising boost in tourism recently thanks to their appearance in hit TV show Outlander. The 16th-century mill stands on the banks of the River Tyne and features a Dutch-style conical roof that fans will recognize from Outlander’s 1940s scenes. A working water mill up until 1959, Preston Mill is now open only for tourists, but visitors can still watch the water-wheel and grain milling machinery in action on a tour. A short stroll from the mill, the quirkily named Phantassie Doocot is another photogenic landmark, a beehive-shaped pigeon house that dates back to the 16th century and once housed up to 500 carrier pigeons.
