The Cabrach was once known for its historic illicit and early farm distilling and can claim to be one of the birthplaces of Malt Whisky. The Cabrach Trust (Charity No SC043771) was established in 2011 in response to a need to preserve the cultural heritage of The Cabrach and safeguard its remote community. In 2013 The Cabrach Trust took ownership of the historic Inverharroch Farm and 170 acres of land. The Cabrach Trust aims to provide jobs and services in order to regenerate The Cabrach through the creation of a Heritage Centre and historic working distillery.
