The nearby stream of course would have dictated the precise location of the Shawbost mill - Isle of Lewis. As the mill was powered by the stream water. In fact it can probably be said that wherever you find a loch feeding into a stream below - then there may well have been a mill and you may see the mill ruins somewhere close by.
