The Glen Albyn distillery was established in 1844 by James Sutherland the Mayor of Inverness. It was badly damaged by fire just 3 years after being built. The distillery was rebuilt in 1884. During World War I the distillery was closed and used as a US Naval base. It was bought in 1920 by the blenders group Mackinley & Birnie. The distillery was requisitioned by the US army during World War II to become a mine factory. Later it was acquired by DCL (Distillers Company Limited) who closed it in 1983 and demolished it in 1986. Sadly there is now a supermarket built on the site.
