Set deep within the beautiful Spey valley, Ballindalloch Castle has been the home of the Macpherson-Grant family since 1546.

Throughout those generations, this much loved Highland estate has upheld tradition while continuing to grow and look to the future.

One of the most recent ventures was to establish a single malt distillery within the valley.

Commissioned by the Lady Laird of Ballindalloch Castle Clare Russell and her husband Oliver, a herd of five Red deer were to be sited in front of the new Ballindalloch distillery in Banffshire.

These magnificent beasts have roamed the glens of the Ballindalloch estate for thousands of years and their presence in front of the distillery seemed a fitting timeless reminder of the slow process of creating a fine single malt whiskey.

These sculptures can be viewed at the distillery and a first class tour can be arranged by appointment which showcases an exceptional single malt.
