A commentary

There used to be many distilleries in Aberdeen, the third biggest city in Scotland that stands by the Northern Sea.
Gilcomston distillery stands on the corner of Rosemount Viaduct and Leadside Road on the North side of Union Street.
It was built by Gilcomston Distillery Co in 1751 but it was closed in 1763.
They reopened it but they changed it to brewery and mill factory.
Now there stand modern apartments on the hill.
You can imagine the days of distillery from the red roof pagoda.
