Malt Whisky Trail
“The Secret Malts of Aberdeenshire”, produced by a cluster of distilleries dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. Visitors can get right up close to traditional skills in rural settings among picturesque villages, wooded hills and rolling fields at places like the Ardmore, Fettercairn, GlenDronach or Knockdhu distilleries, out on the coast for Glenglassaugh (its fans say you can taste the sea), or into the Cairngorms for Royal Lochnagar. Within a short drive is Speyside - home to roughly half of the country's distilleries. From small scale producers who hand craft whisky to some of the most famous distilleries in the world.
