In 2014 construction began on the new Torabhaig Whisky Distillery within a Category B listed farm steading on the Isle of Skye. The distillery was the ambitious vision of the late businessman Sir Iain Noble, who initially achieved planning permission for the project in 2002. The farm steading is now under the ownership of Mossburn Distillers.
Torabhaig is one of the few remaining examples of quadrangular steadings on the Isle of Skye. The north block will be restored, converted and extended with the creation of a new purpose built mash house. The extension will remain sympathetic to the existing building but will stand as an honest modern addition to the listed steading. The rest of the steading and its courtyard will provide visitor accommodation. The landscape around the building is to be remodelled to accommodate a cooling / reflection pond to serve the distillation process and the aesthetic of the place.
The first phase of restoration was completed in 2014 with the first whisky production due to start by early 2017.
