According to Stirks "The Distilleries of Campeltown, it was built in 1832 by Stewart, Galbraith & Co. It was called Scotia then.

Looked it up in a few other books as well - they all states 1832.

Writers of the malt whisky yearbook 2007 noticed this too:

1832 - The family Gailbraith founds Scotia Distillery (the year 1835 is mentioned by the distillery themselves on their labels).
