Plans submitted for Campbeltown distillery

Posted on by in News

Bowman Stewart Architects has put forward plans for a new Dal Riata Distillery in Campbeltown.

Located overlooking Campeltown Loch, the distillery will revive the area’s once thriving industry and will work within the Cambeltown Conservation Area scheme.

The main distillery building will feature curtain wall glazing with balcony views across the Loch. Adjacent to the distillery, the project also includes a retail zone and visitor’s centre.

If the scheme gets approval, Dal Riata Distillery will produce up to 850,000 litres of spirit per annum, using locally grown barley.

Once described as the capital of the whisky world, in the 1800s Campbeltown had over 25 distilleries, until a decline in the 1920s.
