In 1814, the Original Site of the Loch Lomond Distillery Was Established near Tarbet Towards the North West End of Loch Lomond. In 1832, the Glen Scotia Distillery Was Founded in Campbeltown and Is Only One of Three Distilleries Remaining in Campbeltown from That Era.
Loch Lomond marks the boundary between the Lowlands and the highlands of Scotland. This area has been at the heart of the whisky industry for centuries. Sadly though, at least nine distilleries around the Loch have been lost over the years, leaving Loch Lomond Distillers to maintain a proud local tradition into the 21st century.
Campbeltown was reportedly, the ancient seat of the Scottish Parliament set up here by King Fergus in 503AD. Indeed the first site of the Scotia distillery in Parliament Street is said to be on the site from where the Stone of Destiny came, the stone on which all Scottish Monarchs were crowned.
The final legacy of Scotland’s oldest distillery.
