The Carmichael Estate is Scotland’s oldest farming family business, and the source of the Carmichael name. It includes Carmichael House, built in 1734, and the last workable water mill in Clydesdale. There are also archaeological remains of the medieval grain milling, flax processing and a foundry. The gardens include a large collection of over 200 different ornamental trees, as well as a large vegetable and fruit garden.
