Heather Ales was set up in 1992 and initially brewed their beer at West Highland Brewers. In 1993 production moved to Maclay Group plc. In 1999 they opened their own brewery to brew their cask products with the bottled beers being brewed at Forth Brewery Company. The name Craigmill Brewery was used for the beers that do not fit the specialist styles of Heather Ales. Towards the end of 2003 they took over Forth, renaming it Williams Brothers Brewing Company. All production was transferred there by early 2004. However, the brewery has been used by Stewart Brewing Ltd on an irregular basis since then. The Craigmill brand of beers has been ceased. The brewery was sold in 2005 and reopened as Strathaven Ales.

Since the 1974 local government reorganisation there has been much controversy over many county boundaries. The links we provide cover all areas possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the counties for which a Lord-Lieutenant has been appointed, Historic Counties (and their allied county boroughs) which represent the position before the 1974 re-organisation and Local Authority which represents the third tear District level.
