[Dounby Click Mill]

Dounby Click Mill is Orkney's only surviving horizontal water mill, tucked away in a remote corner of the hills southwest of the Broch of Gurness. The picturesque mill is in working condition (though not in use) and occupies an idyllic setting next to a tumbling burn, obviously. Curious cows will watch on from behind nearby fences as you struggle with the awkward latch on the door.
