Thank you to Jonathan Mitchell, who recently moved in to Braelangwell House on the Black Isle for telling me that the photograph above was in fact taken outside the Braelangwell distillery, now used as a outbuilding at the farm to the north of the house.

Thank you to George T Smith who wrote:

Braelangwell

"Braelangwell Distillery interested me. (I used to work in that milieu.)  It seems that, in common with many others, after the licensing of distilleries in 1823, it had bankruptcy problems and finally closed in 1843.

Further research has shown that the owner had no (publicised) background in distilling and this may have contributed to the distillery's failure.

It was certainly in a good malt whisky area but the list of closed distilleries is infinitely longer than those still extant."

"This photo was taken at Braelangwell Steading with doocot at Braelangwell,  Black Isle, Highlands, Scotland."

"Other Ross family  photos now in Stephen Beadle's collection (mentioned above) were also taken at Braelangwell, Black Isle.  These were taken at Braelangwell House and farm steading.

I'm giving a guided tour of Braelangwell in late-May 2014."

Braelangwell

Near Ardgay, Sutherland, Scotland?

"I had always thought the Ross family were associated with the Braelangwell near Ardgay, but these Ross family photos were definitely taken at Braelangwell, Black Isle, Scotland."
