Cairngorms distillery clears planning hurdle

Cairngorms National Park Authority has granted planning approval for a new whisky distillery at Craggan on the outskirts of Grantown-on-Spey.

Designs by TGP and Norr detail a new distillery, visitor centre and warehouse within an area of outstanding natural beauty, necessitating the retention of native woodland complemented by ‘parkland-style’ tree planting.

Project Novus will also retain a native wildflower meadow and marginal wetland areas to preserve existing habitats.

CNPA planning committee convener Eleanor Mackintosh remarked: “I congratulate the applicant on a thorough and well-presented application. This is a major development for the area and will be the first malt whisky distillery to be approved by the CNPA since it was established in 2003.”

The distillery will be built by Gordon & MacPhail with ITP Energised and Cundall.

The distillery is spearheded by Speymalt Whisky Distillers
