Highland Whisky Experience by Whisky Trails: Three Highland Whisky Distilleries

star-5
This Whisky Trail will transport you in comfort, safety, and style to the North East of Scotland and up to three Highland whisky distilleries. You have the option of choosing between Glenmorangie, Clynelish, Balblair, Glen Ord, or Dalmore. No tour of this part of Scotland would be complete without a visit to the Dornoch Castle Whisky Bar where they have over 450 world whiskies for you to sample from. This is also a very good place to enjoy a hearty lunch with your dram. This is a private tour and only your group will participate. Please note that due to COVID19 restrictions, distilleries may open or close at short notice, so some flexibility may be required. Tours may or may not be operating. We will co-ordinate with you to arrange the appropriate schedule for your tour. Typically this tour consists of a visit to a distillery in the morning and afternoon with lunch at the Dornoch Castle Whisky Bar. Depending on timing and restrictions, a third distillery may be possible.

The Glory of Ross Still very unspoiled and remote, Wester Ross is very often missed from the visitor’s itinerary, possibly through pressure of time. If there is one area of the Highlands that affords different and breathtaking views as another bend of the road unwinds, then it is this spectacular area.
