Between the mountain Ben Rinnes and the river Spey, at the hamlet of Carron, not far from Aberlour the Dailuaine ("Dal-oo-ayn") distillery produces a robust, tasty, after-dinner malt. The distillery was founded in 1852 and has been rebuilt several times, most recently in 1960. It is one of several distilleries along the Spey valley that once had their own railway halts, for workers and visitors - and as a means of shipping in barley or malt and despatching whisky. Although the railway line has now been removed the route has been preserved for walkers as the "Speyside Way" from Tomintoul to the sea. Dailuaine had its own steam locomotive, which is now preserved on the Strathspey Railway at Aviemore.
