Whisky is big business in Scotland! There are certain areas which are very popular with those wishing to take a tour, such as Moray and Islay. However, did you know there is a distillery on remote Ardnamurchan? Most of the True Highlands 14 areas have at least one distillery. Even if you aren’t a whisky drinker, the tours and history associated with the distilleries, are fascinating and worth the trip.
But it’s not just distilleries that can offer a whisky experience! Many bars in the Highlands and Islands boast amazing and unusual collections of whisky and it’s a great way to enjoy an evening. Some of the more traditional pubs often have impromptu music evenings with locals bringing along their instruments for a jam session!
There are also many whisky shops offering a gob-smacking amount of choice and the staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
So whether it’s a tour or a night by the log fire, you can’t come all this way without trying a local dram. Sláinte!
