Old Photographs Whisky Distillery Port Charlotte Islay Scotland

Old photograph of the whisky distillery in Port Charlotte on the shores of Loch Indaal, Islay, Scotland. Port Charlotte was named after Lord Frederick Campbell's wife, and it was set up mainly to provide housing facilities for the Lochindaal Distillery work force. In October 1813, the American privateer The True Blooded Yankee captured six merchant ships lying at Port Charlotte, casting them adrift and setting fire to three.
