This mill lies on the left bank of the Burn of Cornabae 40m SE of Crofts farmhouse (NJ31NE 63), which is in use as a private residence. The mill is aligned NE and SW and survives to gable height. There are entrances in the NE end and NW side, and the wheel-pit is visible at the SW end of the SE side. The lade no longer survives, but a short tail-race extends SE from the wheel-pit into the adjacent burn-gully.
The remains of a limekiln are situated on the edge of a burn-gully about 30m S of the mill. The NE side of the kiln has collapsed or has been robbed, but elsewhere its site is marked by shallow depression surrounded by a stony rim with an overall diameter of about 6m.
Visited by RCAHMS (JRS, PC), 9 September 1998.
