Lindores Abbey Distillery
Newburgh, Fife

Lindores Abbey Distillery, Newburgh, Fife

Lindores Abbey Distillery - now open and producing aqua vitae.

Located just to the east of Newburgh on the north coast of Fife just a handful of miles east of J9 on the M90 and directly adjacent to the A913.

We wish more subjects had such good labelling!

This view shows the distillery, behind it Lindores Abbey and the old abbey lands leading down to the River Tay around 550 yards (500 metres) away to the north.

The monks of Lindores supplied not only aqua vitae from long before 1500 but fruit from their extensive orchards and of course salmon from the river so this photo pretty well covers the whole story in one shot. The north shore is the Carse of Gowrie in Perth and Kinross.

A detail of the entrance area to give some idea of the image quality obtained.

From over the Abbey, looking south, this gives an excellent view of the copper stills.

This main building was very cleverly constructed using local traditional materials as an almost exact replacement for some old disused barns and blends in surprisingly well with the local landscape.

Red-tiled roofs are a common and popular feature all over Fife.

In all of these main images you can also spot the webcam which gives full-time coverage of the distillery.



Always remember that images taken by 197 aerial photography are available for clients
in a very much higher quality than the small sized compressed images which are shown
as .jpg files on this website.
