Highland – Caithness & Sutherland
In November 2020, Dunnet Bay Distillers Ltd owned and managed by Caithness husband-and-wife team Claire and Martin Murray purchased Castletown Mill with the intention of restoring and repurposing the building. Turning the building and surrounding environs into a craft whisky distillery and historic environment visitor attraction. Castletown Mill was once part of the Castlehill Estate developed by Agricultural Improver and Caithness Sheriff (Depute) James Traill of Rattar.
After lying derelict for 32 years Castletown Mill is currently being conserved and revitalised before opening to the public in 2024.
For Doors Open Days we are doing guided hard-hat tours of Castletown Mill (building work health and safety permitting) and talks about the restoration of this derelict 1818 grain mill and its revitalisation into a craft whisky distillery and visitor attraction.
Tours at 11am and 2pm.
