Scotland is a stunning country, with beautiful mountains, lochs, and coasts to explore. It also does food and drink very well, and is world famous for its smoked salmon and fine whisky. A tour around a whisky distillery is a great way to spend an afternoon in Scotland (especially if the weather is living up to its reputation!) Here are three of the best.
Nc’Nean, Lochaline, Morvern
This independent, organic distillery offers whisky tastings alongside tea and cake. The relaxed vibe means you can spend a while here, and really get to grips with the process of whisky distilling. With stunning views all around, this is a perfect location to sample Scotland’s famous drink.
Johnnie Walker, Edinburgh
Situated right in the center of the city, this is one of the more accessible and immersive whisky tours available. There are over eight floors to explore at this site, so set aside most of the day. You can order personalized whisky cocktails and sip them in the stunning rooftop bar, looking over the city.
Glenkinchie, Tranent, East Lothian
Nestled in the East Lothian countryside, at this distillery you can sample the whisky whilst enjoying the stunning gardens. In the summer, they are bursting with wildflowers and bees, and this won the distillery a Green Eco Tourism award. If the weather isn’t letting you sit outside, visit the cool bar upstairs which has views out to the nearby hills.
