The distillery is at Tulliemet Village, about five miles to the north of Pitlochry. It is said that it was first built in 1812. The owner changed few times after that. Perth-based John Dewar and Sons Ltd. was the last owner and in 1912, the distillery was closed. Auchnagie, the name of the distillery, is said to be a word from Gaelic,Achadh na Gaoidhe meaning the wind of the fields. Just like the name, it is surrounded with peaceful hill used for farming. Part of the structures from those days still remains but they are hurt badly. The roof still remains in the picture of Scotch Missed, but in 2002 when I visited this place the roof was gone.
It was developed as a residential section and some new residences are built. (2006)
