Malig Mill: date stones
Malig Mill: date stones
The remains have been cleaned up in the time since my earlier picture, NS2982 : Malig Mill: detail, was taken. It is now clear that 1796 is the correct reading of the upper stone.

An new information panel nearby notes that these dates "represent periods of expansion and modernisation at the mill". It does, though, state that the dates are 1796, 1834 and 1854, while, as far as I could tell, the lower stones both read 1834, though with a different style of "3".
Malig Mill
The remains of a mill in what is now Hermitage Park in Helensburgh. The mill considerably pre-dates the town of Helensburgh itself; the Blaeu map of the Lennox (1654) shows "Mulligs M[ill] here, but there may have been a mill here much earlier. Most of the building was demolished in the 1920s. The surviving portions incorporate date stones from the 18th and 19th centuries.
Hermitage Park, Helensburgh
This area was formerly the estate of Hermitage House; the house itself was demolished in 1963. The estate's walled garden still exists, and contains the town's war memorial ( Link ). The ruins of Malig Mill (the mill pre-dates the town of Helensburgh itself) are also located within the park, on the course of the Milligs Burn: Link
