Kilkerran

Glengyle distillery was founded in 1872 by the farmer William Mitchell and lies on Glebe Street in close proximity to the centre of Campbeltown. William had previously owned Springbank distillery with his brother John, they parted ways after a quarrel. Following the Pattison crisis, West Highland Malt Distilleries acquired the distillery in 1919. Glengyle distillery went into voluntary liquidation five years later, officially closing in 1925 having auctioned all of the malt whisky stocks. For some time the Campbeltown Miniature Rifle Club rented the buildings, using them as a rifle range. It was acquired by Bloch Brothers in 1940 but failed to effectively restart production due to the difficulties that the Second World War brought on. By the 1970s, Glengyle had become a headquarters for the Kintyre Farmers Cooperative, the malting floors were used as offices and the kiln room had been used to package animal feed.
