Cardhu & Aberlour
In 1811, John and Helen Cumming sited their first still at Cardow Farm on the Mannoch Hill, high above the River Spey. At this location spring water, naturally softened by rising up through a layer of peat, bubbled from the ground. It is alleged that Helen Cumming distilled the first gallon of Cardhu, the only malt whisky to be pioneered by a woman. Nearby Aberlour provides a range of local services including schooling at Speyside High. This area benefits from good communications and is well placed for the A9 which links Inverness to Perth. On the doorstep of the Cairngorms National Park the house is within easy distance of all of its sporting and leisure amenities. The A96 can also be reached (at Elgin northbound or Huntly southbound) and links Inverness to Aberdeen.
