Dalmore, ‘Last Mill on the River Esk’



Wm. Sommerville & Son was the last papermaking company to set up on the River Esk. Formerly a meal mill, work started on the construction of the papermill at Auchindinny in 1835.

By the time it closed in 2004 it was producing 10,000 tons a year of high quality paper and providing direct employment for 120 people.
