Sapling to Sawmill Event 2 (South Scotland)


This is the second event for our Sapling to Sawmill meetings this time we visit Townhead Sawmill, James Kingan and Sons.

It is run by David Kingan who will lead the tour.

The sawmill supplies a wide range of fencing timber, timber for farm buildings, pallet wood and can also to cut to order most timber requirements

This event will demonstrate how the sawmill converts your tree into utilisable products. It will show a range of timber products can be cut from a tree and their value. You will be able to see first-hand what a major, local, timber buyer (particularly from farms and estates) is looking for in term of timber quality.


Helpful directions: From Dumfries, take the A710 towards New Abbey/Solway Coast to New Abbey. Passing the mill on the right hand side, take the next right and follow the road around in front of the Abbey Arms. Townhead Sawmill is approximately 200 yards up this road.


Bookings are no longer available for this event.
