Ballindalloch Castle has been the family home of the Macpherson-Grants since 1546, its splendid towers and rambling gardens being at the heart of Speyside rural life.

When the family resolved to open a distillery on the Estate, they were determined that it should complement the grandeur of the existing Castle, aiming to create ‘an area for guests that didn’t feel like a visitor centre’.


The family repurposed an old 18th century steading, and carefully managed the carpentry, tiling, stonework and fittings to achieve a seamless blend of old and new. Distillery Host Brian Robinson commented that the bespoke flooring had the character and charm to match the beautiful setting. The finished product is crafted to look like 17th century timber, with rolled and hand scraped edges, smoked and finished in a natural white oil. 

“We worked closely with a number of local craftsmen to give us a high quality look and feel that fitted with the period style we were trying to achieve,” says Brian. “Russwood excelled in providing the range and quality of products that enabled the team to achieve an outstanding finish.”
