UPDATE 17 June 2016: A recent survey has identified that a section of the ruin is in imminent danger of collapse, the area in question being the location of Scotland's first James Watt Steam Engine (1786). This ruin must be saved and it needs your help now. Please donate at: https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/kennetpans-trust-1?utm_id=2&utm_term=W5GvXpBaK
Kennetpans (near to the town of Alloa in Clackmannanshire) was founded in the 1720s by the charismatic and controversial Stein family, and became the largest distillery in Scotland. It played a key role in Scotland's industrial revolution and helped found two of the world’s most famous drinks brands, Jamesons and Haigs.
With a passion for Scotland's history (and an enjoyer of a wee dram now and again!), Airborne Lens photographer and aerial filmmaker, Liam Anderstrem, spent a weekend at the ruins to capture a variety of digital media that he hopes will raise awareness of it's remarkable story and encourage viewers to form an emotional connection to the site and perhaps even take the time to visit for themselves.
