From the Mill


Milling timber at a sawmill, especially when it involves high-quality Scottish wood such as larch, Douglas fir, beech, ash, oak, and other native species, is a meticulous process that prioritises quality over quantity. This approach sets certain sawmills apart from the rest, where the essence of the craft lies in respecting the intrinsic value of the wood. In these specialized mills, each log of Scottish timber is seen not just as raw material but as a repository of potential—waiting to be transformed into something both beautiful and enduring.

The milling process begins with a careful selection of logs, each chosen for its unique characteristics and suitability for specific projects. This discerning choice ensures that the natural beauty and strength of Scottish woods like larch and oak are preserved and highlighted in the final product. The sawmill’s focus on quality over quantity means that each piece of timber is milled with precision and care. Advanced milling techniques are employed, but the human touch is paramount, with skilled artisans overseeing the process to ensure that the wood’s grain, color, and texture are respected and enhanced.
This philosophy of milling emphasizes sustainability and craftsmanship. By concentrating on quality, these sawmills not only produce superior wooden materials but also contribute to the conservation of Scottish forests, ensuring that these native species continue to thrive for generations to come.
