Glencarrick distillery

Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Glencarrick distillery is a difficult one to locate accurately. Its basic OS coordinates place it on the Duncow Burn near the hamlet of Kirkton in Kilmahoe parish, however further north up the Duncow Burn is a house called Carrickrigg, with a disused mill nearby. Distilleries were often converted to mills after they closed. A mid-1800s gazetteer mentions a cascade on the Duncow Burn which once had a distillery close by, although its exact location is impossible to determine.
