The Cabrach Trust is embarking on an exciting regeneration project to develop a small distillery and heritage centre on the historic Inverharroch site, celebrating the rich heritage and culture of The Cabrach. This remote and haunting land was once the thriving hub of an illicit whisky industry and the heritage centre will tell this thrilling Cabrach story.

The Cabrach Trust was established in 2011 in response to a need to preserve the rich cultural heritage of the Cabrach and it’s remote communities. In 2013, thanks to generous private donations and the support of the Stairway Trust and the Reekimlane Foundation, the Cabrach Trust took ownership of the historic Inverharroch Farm and its 170 acres of land. In addition, the Trust is now, in partnership with the Cabrach Community Association, pursuing ownership, through a Community Asset Transfer from the Moray Council, of the Old school and Hall in the Lower Cabrach.
The Cabrach Trust is a social enterprise and all profits from the distillery and heritage centre will be used to further the Trust’s social aims of providing jobs, housing, and services to regenerate this remote rural landscape.
The work of the Cabrach Trust is enabled by the generous support and funding of private donors, Trust’s and Foundations, including; The Reekimlane Foundation, the Vattenfall Clashindarroch Community Fund through Foundation Scotland, Community Energy Scotland, Resource Efficient Scotland.
