The Highland Park distillery buildings are Category B listed. The chimney the OS sighted to has been demolished, it's gone, there are no remains. The map clip below shows it as a stand-alone chimney not connected to any of the buildings. It is definitely not one of the modern 'pagoda' chimneys.

Pagoda-topped structures are too far from road. Expected location is 30m from road edge. Small chimney just visible at approx correct location but whatever the OS used has gone. "Remains" as distillery still there

I've visited the Distillery many times but not sure about a "chimney".. I'm guessing that OS triangulated to one of the horizon breaking pagoda tops of the twin malting houses.
