This evening, my focus is on Craigellachie. This is a fascinating small town (see above image) in the heart of the Speyside Scotch Whisky industry. The name Craigellachie was the battle cry of Clan Grant and translates as ‘crag of the rocky place’. Below is an image of the River Spey near Craigellachie.
To my mind, Craigellachie is indelibly associated with the whisky industry. Nearby can be found a host of famous distilleries including Speyburn, Glen Grant, Caperdonich, Glenrothes, Glen Spey, Macallan, Cardhu, Knockando, Tamdhu, Aberlour, Dulluaine, Benrinnes, Glenallachie, Glenfiddich, Balvenie, Glenfarclas and Strathisla. Close by can also be found (and visited) the Speyside Cooperage which produces the oak casks in which whisky is matured for 3 years and upwards.
