When we visited the tours were not available, but they have an exhibition center with a movie and a gift shop that were both very interesting. Next visit we will time it so we can take the tour.
On visit to Scotland from south coast of England, decided to go see the cashmere mill. The tour was free and conducted by Gavin, who by own admission was very new to doing tours. However, he needn't have worried, it and he were excellent. Cut a bit short due to hoofing rain so no standing around outside the warehouses, but... 更多
Me and a few friends took the Johnston's Mill tour in Elgin today and I'm very happy we did! Our guide was very friendly and obviously knew what she was talking about. The tour started in the visitor centre and continued on to the factory itself. It was fascinating to see all the machines and people at work, especially since... 更多
Took a tour of the factory. You need to ring up to book. It is free and well worth it. Very interesting. Bought a beautiful cashmere scarf in the shop afterwards for £30. Had a coffee and sandwiches in the cafe as well which was in a lovely setting, clean and bright. Lots to choose from on the menu. Staff... 更多

They were weaving some very identifiable scarves for very famous high end French and British... 更多
Johnston's of Elgin is a classic staple of Elgin Scotland. It is the last operating mill in an area that once had 8 working mills. The machines for the various stages of making the beautiful scarves blankets and throws are truly amazing in their complexity. Really fun!

The Hawick mill is a knitting machine mill the tour is short and informal. The shop clerk took us around to see the new knitting machines, the cones of cashmere and wool, and all the finishing steps to the final product. At each step, we stopped to chat with the ladies and men who do the finishing handwork. It's nice... 更多
The tour was pretty interesting, despite starting with a very boring video (it’s essentially a five minute advert). You get to go right through the mill and it was great to see how raw cashmere becomes the items you see in the shops from start to finish. The tour guide was OK, a little unenthusiastic (I think they use teenagers... 更多
