A MORAY ATTRACTION is making a national and international impact as it has been featured in the latest edition of an influential guide to all that is best in Scotland.

Hot on the heels of being named as one of Europe’s top attractions the Knockando Woolmill has been included in Pete Irvine’s new edition of ‘Scotland the Best’.

Published by Harper Collins, Scotland the Best has now reached its 12th edition and is considered the essential guide to the very best that Scotland has to offer visitors.

Pete revises the guide regularly to ensure that is remains up to date with the latest attractions around the country, with inclusion considered as the ultimate compliment for any Scottish attractions.

A spokesman for publishers Harper Collins said: “The 12th edition of Scotland the Best, noted as one of the bestselling guides to Scotland for over 20 years, featuring only the best of what Scotland has to offer.

“Trusted for over 20 years, this fully comprehensive and independent guide to Scotland gives you only the very best recommendations, whatever your budget.”

The Woolmill has been open to visitors since June 2012 and last year welcomed over 20 000 visitors to the Grade A listed historic site. It underwent an extensive £3.5 million restoration to save the precious Victorian textiles machinery and listed buildings.

Knockando Woolmill was recently announced as one of the winners of the 2016 European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage /Europa Nostra Awards, Europe’s highest honour in the heritage field.
