Petty distillery

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Petty is a small area a few miles east of Inverness containing a farm, today called Newton of Petty, which is sandwiched between the A96 Inverness-Nairn road and the Inverness-Aberdeen rail line. The Rough Burn, fed by a stream that skirts Newton Farm, meanders through the area northwards to the Moray Firth. This may well have been the location of Petty distillery. Nearby is Petty Church and graveyard, slightly further away are Castle Stuart golf course and Inverness Airport.
