Controversial Scottish distillery gains a step

Highland Council planning officials have recommended that a controversial whisky distillery on the remote Ardnamurchan Peninsula be approved, despite attracting 52 letters of objection.

However, out of 169 representations from the public -- most from non-residents -- 105 were in support of the £5 million (US$7.9 million) development by Adelphi Distillery Ltd.

The application has split the communities that line the peninsula, with West Ardnamurchan Community Council supporting the plan and Sunart Community Council -- which covers the area to the north of the proposed site at Glenbeg -- objecting to it.
