Balmoral Mill Shop


16 Church Lane, Galston, Ayrshire, KA4 8HF

    Balmoral Mill Shop is one of only a few mill shops that exist in conjunction with a working Scottish knitwear factory.

    Balmoral Knitwear has been manufacturing garments at its factory in Galston, Ayrshire for over 100 years.

    The Mill Shop is open seven days a week and sells the Burnawn label, a range of its own factory produced garments, as well as some leading brand names. The shop caters for ladies, gents and children as well as stocking Scottish gift items.

    There is a relaxing shopping environment, away from the busy High Street. The car park is just behind the shop and has easy access for disabled customers. There is a coffee shop on site, which sells home baking, light lunches and snacks.

    Galston is located in beautiful rolling Ayrshire countryside about 30 minutes drive south of Glasgow and 20 minutes from Glasgow Prestwick International Airport.
