    Scope & contentThis book is an introduction to the bobbins, bobbin mills and bobbin making in the north of Scotland during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Many of the bobbin mills used birch to make bobbins for the textile industries, particularly the jute industry around Dundee and the cotton thread industry around Paisley, near Glasgow. The author provides an outline of the turning mills in Angus, Aberdeenshire, Perthshire and the bobbin mills of the Highlands, along with detailed mill profiles of 88 bobbin mills. [The data from this book can also be found on the mill entries on the Mills Database of the Mills Archive website].
