Situated in Angus, one of Scotland’s top malting barley growing areas, Stracathro is the largest of the four grain stores that were brought under the company’s ownership following the acquisition of W.N. Lindsay Ltd in January 2021.
It is five miles east of the town of Brechin, just off the A90 – the main road connecting Dundee and Aberdeen – and was acquired by W.N. Lindsay Ltd in 2008, who made significant investments in the site, adding three new sheds to increase the drying capacity, while also upgrading the seed dressing plant.
In total, Stracathro has 110,000 tonnes of storage across 12 sheds, while it can also dry 2,000 tonnes of barley per day in its four driers.
Sidlaw is the smallest of the company’s six grain stores, with a total capacity of 30,000 tonnes in 15 silos.
It is located near the village of Burrelton in Perthshire and is 15 miles north-west of Dundee – the fourth-largest city in Scotland.
Like our other grain stores, it is ideally situated in a popular region for growing malting barley.
