Glen Mhor canal-side 1980


We're taking you back in time to April 1980 and the hustle and bustle of the Caledonian Canal and into the Muirtown basin.

Just on the right of the image, you can see a couple of buildings from Glen Mhor. What looks like the original maltings with the ugly modern boxed extension. Then, beyond this, you can just make out the distinctive white buildings of Glen Albyn.

I love this perspective as it showcases how important water access was and how close these 2 distilleries were to one another. Another feature is the level area between the canal and Glen Mhor. Today, all that remains are the houses and a wall. Neither of which really highlight the drop into the modern retail unit.
