Glen Cawdor DistilleryGlen Cawdor Distillery

Founded in 1896
Glen Cawdor was built near the River Nairn, close to the Inverness - Elgin line.

Glen Cawdor was founded by three businessmen, on six acre land. The distillery was designed by Charles Doig, who was the creater of the Pagoda type chimneys.

The company was dissolved in 1901, and changed hands to John Haig & Co. in 1903. The distillery was closed in 1927, and demolished in 1930, without a trace.

Charles Doig was the architect of the distillery. As he was the inventor of Pagoda style chimneys, Glen Cawdor was lucky enough to hire him.

There were 16 distilleries that were built during the late-Victorian boom. Glen Cawdor was one of them.
