Scope and Content Millburn Distillery, Millburn Road, Inverness, Highland This distillery was probably founded in 1825, but may have been in operation as early as 1807. From 1853 to 1876 it appears to have been a grain mill, owned by David Rose, who then rebuilt it as a distillery. It was rebuilt after a fire in 1922 by Booth's Distillery Co, and bought in 1943 by The Distillers' Co Ltd. This shows part of the distillery from the north. The three-storeyed and attic block is almost certainly the grain mill which occupied the site from 1853. Judging by the tie-plates on the wall it then became a barley store for the maltings to the rear, which were probably built in the 1890s. This distillery was closed in 1985, the last of the three Inverness distilleries to operate. Most of the buildings were demolished in 1989, including those in this view, but some of the buildings were retained and converted into a restaurant. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
