The original mill was built in the 19th Century and was water-powered from Rohallion Loch and Robin’s Dam which flow into Stare Dam (see photo below and click for map). This in turn flows under the B876 and into the Mill Dam. The purpose of this loch system was to provide water power controlled by sluices for the original saw mill at Byres of Murthly, which was built 3 storeys high in the shape of a meal mill. The first storey housed the mill water wheel machinery, the second the sawing operation and the top being a workshop. This  old structure has since been demolished.  
 The present mill was established in the mid-1970s and is owned and operated by    Murthly & Strathbraan Estates, timber being  mainly sourced from the Tayside area.
