Scope and Content Longmorn-Glenlivet Distillery, Morayshire This large distillery was built at the beginning of the whisky boom of the 1890s by the Longmorn-Glenlivet Distillery Co. In 1898 it amalgamated with the nearby newly-built Benriach-Glenlivet Distillery, which however closed in 1900. This view shows a train on the internal railway system which connected Longmorn and Benriach distilleries. To the rear are the two stillhouses, with their roof-ridge ventilators, and the chimney providing draught for the coal-fired stills. This was the last distillery railway operating in the Highlands. It closed c1980, and the locomotive, repainted to advertise Queen Anne blended whisky, was moved to the Strathspey Railway at Boat of Garten. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
