KNOCKANDO IS CUL­TURAL KNOCK­OUT

Scottish Field - - IN THE KNOW -

Knockando Woolmill in the High­lands is one of the win­ners of the 2016 Euro­pean Union Prize for Cul­tural Her­itage, fol­low­ing an ex­ten­sive restora­tion pro­ject. Knockando is unique in that it has been pro­duc­ing tex­tiles con­tin­u­ously since 1784. The mill restora­tion in­cluded the cre­ation of a work­shop to train young peo­ple in tra­di­tional crafts and a vis­i­tor cen­tre, which im­pressed the judges. www.knockandow­oolmill.co.uk
