1983 - Production Moves to Aberdeen....

1983
With the huge growth of the tourist industry in Pitlochry in the 1970's, the pool of labour willing to work in the textile industry dried-up. As there was a shortage of housing for textile workers, recruiting from outside the area was not an option. In 1983 the decision was taken to close the Pitlochry mill and the production was transferred to The Isle Mill in Aberdeen.
