This Lowland Distillery took its name from St Magdalene's Cross, once a site of a mediaeval fair and leper colony. The Union Canal ran behind the distillery and not only supplied the cooling water, but in the distillery's heyday, was the main method of supply with barley and other materials brought in by barge to the jetty. The distillery was closed down in 1983, and sold for property development. Now a very rare single malt.
