Clynelish receives planning permission for expansion

17 June 2019

I heard a while ago that Diageo were planning a lot of work for the Clynelish distillery in Brora, including an expanded and improved visitor experience.

Clynlish Plans

Well, they’ve just announced on Twitter that their plans have received permission from the Highland Council.

There has been much expansion at distilleries across Scotland over the last few years. Clynelish is quite far north, but I’ve made it there three times (in 2012, 2016 and 2017); the last time the Clynelish distillery itself was closed for some work, but we were able to see part of the old decommissioned Brora distillery.

I’ll not be at Clynelish this year and I’m planning to do Islay next year, so Diageo have almost three years before I plan to be there. Hopefully they will have completed the work before my next visit.
