Stonnywood distillery

Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Back in the late 18th century, Stoneywood consisted of a mansion house and farm, plus other buildings, south of the River Carron just west of Denny in Stirlingshire. Stonnywood distillery probably sat close to the river, where in the 19th century a dyewood works and paper mill were built, with rail sidings on a branch line off the nearby main line.

Today Stoneywood is Denny’s sole housing estate west of the M80 Glasgow-Stirling motorway, and Stoneywood House and farm, plus the mill, have long vanished. However, one riverside cul-de-sac is called Old Mill Way, as a faint reminder of the past.
