Whisky Trails And Whisky Tails

The Whisky Trail
By and large, Scotch malt whiskies are grouped into five categories, Highland, Campbeltown, Islay, Islands, Lowland and of course our home in Speyside. As residence of Speyside, we hold the region close to our heart, and more than half of Scotland’s operational malt whisky distilleries can be found here, with 6 in the small town of Dufftown alone! Speyside malts are diverse in style and vary from the light, soft, floral Knockando and Cardhu to weighty, more complex and heavily sherried malts such as Mortlach and The Macallan. Here you’ll find many of the most well known names in Scotch whisky, such as Glenfiddich, Glenfarclas, Glen Grant, The Glenlivet and The Macallan – to name but a few!

Learn everything you need to know about Scotland’s Liquid Gold on our famous Whisky Trails.

Walking Whisky Tours

The renowned Dufftown Distilleries Walk is a relaxed walking tour around the past and present distillery sites of Dufftown. This tour allows access to otherwise closed distilleries as well as the opportunity to taste some rather rare drams!

Booking is essential! Contact for tour details.

Stunning Walks and Cycle Routes

The Isla Way connects Dufftown to the Speyside way.  It gives lovely shorter walks and can be joined next to the Dufftown Station. The Sidings Café provides a handy refreshment point as you join or leave the pathway.

The Speyside Way is one of the few official long distance walking routes in Scotland.

See for details for all walking routes including The Isla Way, The Speyside Way and the Moray Coastal Route.
