Possible location of Glenkinchie Distillery. Correct me if wrong please.

From maps of the area, I would say that this is Bankton Colliery, roughly 5 miles from the distillery.

This is Meadowmill Washery (a coal washing plant). Glenkinchie is further south inland near Pencaitland and not visible in these photographs of Port Seton and Cockenzie.

OK Andy, thanks. I'll delete the photo in a couple of weeks (if I can)

Having worked at Glenkinchie Distillery, I do not think tag is at the distillery. The photo shows the sea at the bottom, so the plane is over the Forth Estuary and you cannot see Pencaitland which should be fairly clear.

Glenkinchie based further south at Pencaitland.
