The Courtyard at Blair Athol Distillery

Blair Athol Distillery stands at the southern end Pitlochry, on the uphill side of the road just as you drive into this bustling town from the main A9. It is worth noting immediately that the distillery is not, as you might imagine from the name, in the slightly differently spelled village of Blair Atholl, six miles to the north west.

“The Audacious Project builds on TED’s track record of surfacing important ideas, and getting them to people who’ll be deeply inspired by them. Each year, we’ll invite social entrepreneurs to share their boldest ideas with us — and we’re looking for ideas that truly take your breath away, that flood you with a sense of possibility. We’ll use our curatorial expertise to vet these ideas, help shape them and surface the ones that have both thrilling potential and a ready-for-action plan on how to accomplish it. We’ll bring these ideas to both donors and to the public, inspiring people across the world to come together to act and turn these audacious dreams into realities.”
