Darroch’s passion for whisky comes from working for more than a decade in the Highland whisky industry near Loch Ness and he became interested in archaeology whilst studying anthropology at the University of Aberdeen. Darroch went on to study an MLitt in Archaeological studies with UHI and started his PhD in October 2017.
