This is the grimmest and most derelict distillery I've visited. It is well-secured due to being used for storage so I couldn't gain access to the buildings unfortunately.

Typical distillery pagoda roof and bonded warehouse to the right, which is still in use

Well-weathered pile of coal which would have supplied coal-fired boilers I think - the buildings are grimy and soot-blackened

Warehouse No.2 doors

The buildings don't appear to have been maintained at all since the distillery closed in 1985

Sorry about the dullness of the photos, but they convey the truly miserable weather. Autumn is here!

Derv tank gauge - empty

Cask shed was full of these...

I've never heard of that before, I'm pretty sure it is soot. I've never seen another distillery quite so grimy, and I've been to many - every part of the place was covered in it.

I finally made it inside Convalmore.

Courtesy of no tripod and ISO 3200.:lol:


Convalmore is even dingier inside than it is outside


Out of the tun room and into the still house it's a bit better, though there's no floors. Stellar







Once you get up there, there's a funky old distillery control panel greeting you. The patchwork of grating provides a little security getting over to the other side of the still house...
