Sc haugh + Sc miln

‘Mill on or by a haugh or low land beside a river’. The haugh in question is an extensive piece of flat land on the north side of the Leven, the eastern end of which is now covered by distillery buildings.

    Haughmill Farm is shown on both OS Pathf. 373 and OS Explorer at the above NGR, but the farm itself completely disappeared a long time ago, while the mill consists of only a few low, ruinous walls on the south side of the large, well-constructed mill lade.
