    One of the most intact abandoned whisky distilleries in Scotland, and an interesting building with plenty of 'frozen in time' details. The distillery is in surprisingly good condition, with no vandalism and little natural deterioration. Sadly the valuable stills and other distillery features have been removed.

     Future Plans
    Permission was granted to convert the distillery to residential use in the past but nothing has come of it.

    The current owner plans to turn it into a music venue.
