Scoraclet History

Scoralet distillery was licensed to Donald McIver in 1798 but the distillery closed that same year.

Scoraclet farm is today still reached by a ford, not a bridge, and has a small on-site stream or watercourse that feeds into the Strath Burn. The Doull family, who ran the farm for many years, discovered the remains of an iron age broch on the land.
