Old Mill o'Mains
- Do a search on Google and Blue Yonder, not under Mill o'Mains, but Den
o' Mains reveals a lot of information about the area. Including
District Council pictures. Go to paqes 64/65 and there's pictures of
the mill, the Mill o'Mains farm and the old Mains School. The quaint
wooden bridge over the Dighty in one of the pics is priceless.
There's also a brilliant article on the Mains Castle, the best I've
read yet, much better than the book that used to be on sale in the
Also whilst researching Scottish Folklore I was reading about Sacred
Wells and came across a reference to "St. Sinavey, locally known as
Sunny Vie, Den o'Mains, Dundee." This is the only reference I can
find to this Saint or well. Anyone heard of this. I know the Den o'
Mains area was changed when the pond was built so it's probably gone
now. You never know, though. Anyone out there with any info on this?
