Abbotshaugh distillery

Abbotshaugh History

Abbotshaugh distillery opened in 1825, licensed to the Abbotshaugh Distillery Co. However, the site closed in 1828 when Mr A McFarlane, a major investor, withdrew from the venture.

Abbotshaugh House was still listed in the Scottish County Directory a century later, but the area is now an industrial estate, west of The Helix roundabout on the old A9 road.
