You probably knew it already but Speyside is the whisky capital of the world. A staggering 50% of the bottles you see on shop shelves were produced here or around Moray: Glenfiddich, Cardhu, Macallan, Glenlivet, Benromach, Glen Moray, Glenrothes, Glen Grant, Strathisla, Tamdhu, Balvenie the list goes on. There is really no other trail like it. Its there in everything you see; from the land that prepares the barley, to the clear fresh waters that provide the springs; its a noble and ancient art at the centre of a noble and ancient region.
Depending on your dedication or endurance levels, the Speyside Malt Whisky Trail can refer to the organised tour of eight distilleries in Moray (Glen Moray, Glenlivet, Benromach, Cardhu, Glenfiddich et al) or a marathon exploration of the additional 25 large and small distilleries youll find dotted throughout Moray and the surrounding region. Our location on the edge of Dufftown makes us ideal for getting around with at least four of the distilleries well within walking distance. We couldnt be more central or more affordable.
During the annual Spirit of Speyside Festival accommodation can be scarce, so it pays to book early. Check out accommodation at the links below.
