Stonefield distillery

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Rather confusingly Stonefield distillery did not sit in the village of Stonefield near Tarbert, which boasts a mid-19th century castle, but some 55 miles to the north, near Taynuilt.

The distillery sat midway between Connel and Taynuilt in northern Argyll, close to the southern shore of the saltwater Loch Etive, beside the A85 road and railway line from Tyndrum to Oban. A small burn that runs past on its way to Loch Etive was doubtless the distillery’s water source. When it was intact, Stonefield distillery would have had a fine view of the Abbot’s Isle, some distance offshore in the loch.
