Highland Park Malt Whisky Distillery History.
Records show that a illicit still was established in the area in the 1790Õs by Magnus Eunson, linked to illicit distilling and smuggling in the area.

In 1825 Robert Borwick, a Kirkwall merchant, set up his distillery in the same area then known as Highland Park.

The property belonged to a John Robertson, the Excise Officer who had arrested Magnus Eunson some years earlier.

The land is served by two strong springs of crystal clear water fed by a pool at Cattie Maggie's at Greenvale. On 18 August 1826, he acquired the land rights together with the distillery, malt barn, and 'whole other buildings' from John Robertson.
