Wideford distillery

Islands Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Wideford distillery was located about two miles from Kirkwall on the slopes of Wideford Hill and on the Burn of Hatston, which was likely its water source.

A 1912 gazetteer indicates that at the time Wideford House was home to James Begg, Orkney’s procurator fiscal.
