Dingwall Whisky Distillery Trust was established in 2021 by the founder of GlenWyvis Distillery, John F McKenzie, to put measures in place for the long term management of the land on which the distillery sits.
In 2013 I began progressing the reinstatement of whisky distilling at Dingwall on my farm and GlenWyvis Distillery formed as a farm diversification project.
In June 2023 I will be telling my story of the first 10 years of the project I started and why I chose to sell to a new landlord
Scroggie Farm, the land on which GlenWyvis Distillery sits, is for sale. This is a unique opportunity to purchase 30 acres of prime farmland and become a landlord.
For selected dates throughout the year, the Dingwall Whisky Distillery Trust will encourage visitors to immerse themselves in the local whisky heritage by way of a guided walk.
Along the route, walkers can learn about local whisky folklore while taking in the breathtaking natural environment of fauna and flora (including badgers, pine martens, foxes, deer, red kites, buzzards, pheasants, partridge and farm animals).
Designed by landscape architects Horner + Maclennan, the path will open later this year (days for 2022 to be announced in June).
Unfortunately, as Scroggie Farm is a working farm, with large animals (cattle, bulls, Highland cows) dogs are not permitted at any time.
Providing another way to celebrate the local landscape and encourage visitors to become one with nature we will be permitting wild camping on the land from 2023.
Please make sure you're familiar with the Wild Camping Code. In summary:
As with the ramblers path, dogs will not be permitted at any time.
