Knockando Woolmill Trust is a registered Scottish Charity No SC030167 set up in 2000 with the aim of rescuing and restoring the Woolmill to ensure its future survival. The aim was achieved when the Mill was reopened by HRH the Duke of Rothesay in 2012. The Trust continues to hold responsibility for the future survival of the Mill.
The Charitable Purposes of the Trust are to preserve, conserve and develop Knockando Woolmill, including its historic textile plant and machinery, and its immediate surroundings and watercourses as a historic rural working woolmill by providing a training in those skills and by other appropriate means specifically through:
• Promoting the heritage and historical significance of Knockando Woolmill
• Educating the general public about the heritage and historical significance of Knockando Woolmill
• Renovating and improving the existing mill buildings, textile plant and machinery, land and watercourses so that they may continue to function as a working rural woolmill and historical landmark
• The wholesale and retail sale of products manufactured at Knockando Woolmill and items incorporating products manufactured at Knockando Woolmill.
The Knockando Woolmill Company Limited is the wholly owned subsidiary of the Knockando Woolmill Trust, and trades entirely in support of the Trust.
Although The Trust has completed the main task of restoring the Woolmill and setting up a structure to ensure its financial future, help will be required with fund raising for specific projects and improvements, and volunteers to help with some of our activities such as keeping the garden under control and helping with the education programme.
The Trust can be contacted through the office at Knockando Woolmill.
