Elgin

Visitors to our historic Elgin site can witness every stage of our manufacturing process first-hand, during a Mill Tour. Guests can browse our luxurious clothing, accessories and home interiors products in The Mill Shop and our recently renamed Weavers Restaurant offers the highest quality Scottish produce, including vegan, light bite and seafood options, while providing exceptional customer service.

For more than 220 years we have been knitting and weaving the finest Cashmere and Woollen products and, as the only vertical mill in Scotland, we are proud to share every stage, from dyeing and blending to teaseling and finishing, with our visitors from around the world. From raw fibre in the wool store to our finished garments, our employees take pride in every stitch.

Within our Courtyard building, customers can explore our coveted Home Interiors and fabric ranges, while the Johnstons of Elgin Heritage Centre tells the story of our rich history. The Mill Shop, spanning two floors, offers our exquisite Cashmere, Merino Wool and Tweed products across Men’s, Women’s and Children’s departments. We also stock products by exclusive brands such as Barbour, Hackett, Two Danes, Masai, Joules, Aigle, Meyer, Nomads, Creenstone, Mayoral, Pigeon Organics & Fairfax & Favor.
