Outlander location, Preston Mill, which is located on the banks of the River Tyne in East Linton, has been affected by the recent adverse weather just weeks after restoration work was completed.

The Mill was one of the region’s last working grain mills having been used commercially until 1959. However, the 18th century needed urgent help to repair its water wheel after the mechanism which allowed it to turn broke over the winter months, causing it to jam in a fixed position.

Sam Heughan, star of the hit TV show offered his thanks after the conservation charity called on the public to help restore the picturesque mills where some of the TV shows most memorable scenes were filmed.
