The Ardnamurchan Distillery

We woke this morning to the news that Highland Council's Planning Committee has deferred a decision on permission to develop the distillery at Glen Beg until April 17th. Amongst other things, the committee wishes to conduct a site visit.

When Donald Houston of Adelphi Distillery Ltd spoke to West Ardnamurchan Community Council, he said that any delay would result in the distillery being built in Fife. Let's hope that Adelphi are prepared to wait until mid-April before making that decision.

More about the decision to defer, which was led by Councillors Michael Foxley and Bren Gormley, is here.

  1. Councillors Foxley and Gormley seem to have forgotten they were put in place to represent the majority of the people not the minotity who seem to want to keep Glenbeg to themselves, no thought for the wider community who would welcome the distillery and a chance for some of our young folk to return to their homeland where there would be jobs if the distillery went ahead.This hold up won't help the probable chopping of the car ferry either.
