Stanley Mills has reopened to the public after being closed for over two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.The reopening of the historic site, one of Scotland’s best preserved, Industrial Revolution era attractions, gives visitors the chance to enjoy a hi-tech experience with interactive displays telling the stories of those who once worked there and what they produced.For 200 years, the spectacular mill harnessed the power of the River Tay to produce textiles.Built in the 1780s, the mill complex was altered many times to keep up with the industry’s changing demands, before it finally closed in 1989.Historic Environment Scotland (HES) reopened over 70 per cent of its estate last year, however, some of its sites had remained closed.Visitors can now book tickets to the historic attraction as part of HES’s new seasonal activity for 2022, with more sites set to follow in reopening across the country on a rolling basis.Stephen Duncan, director of marketing and engagement at HES, said: “We are delighted to have even more of our sites such as Stanley Mills reopening up and down the country and across our Islands for the summer season, allowing us to again provide visitors with the opportunity to enjoy much loved heritage attractions.“With over 5000 years of history in our care, we have adopted a phased approach to reopening a lot of our sites, presenting as diverse a mix of attractions as possible.“And we are looking forward to welcoming visitors back to enjoy more and more of our nation’s world class historic environment after what has been an extremely challenging time for everyone involved in the tourism and heritage sectors.”Tickets are available from the HES website and are now on sale.
