You're right about the warehouse - it certainly contains Port Charlotte stocks including the privately owned casks. Furthermore the distillery's stock of Octomore is placed there.
I seem to recall that the former distillery buildings houses the Islay Museum, but I guess some of the buildings could also house the hostel.
So if they succeed in getting permission to re-open Lochindaal distillery, they would have to find another place for the museum and hostel. Bruichladdich owns the warehouse, but I don't know if they also own the former distillery buildings. I'm not too sure about the point of doing so since they allready make the Port Charlotte malt using the Bruichladdich stills. Why don't they simply add the Lomond still to the Bruichladdich still house if they want to use it. Seems to me to be a much cheaper solution. Think it would be a better use of the money to re-open the maltings.
