Highland Park Distillery
Lonely Planet review for Highland Park Distillery
South of the centre, this distillery, where they malt their own barley, is great to visit. You can see the barley and the peat kiln used to dry it on the excellent, well-informed hour-long tour (hourly May to August, and weekdays at 2pm and 3pm September to April).The standard 12-year-old is a soft, balanced malt, great for novices and aficionados alike; the 18-year-old is among the world’s finest drams. This and older whiskies can be tasted on more specialised tours (£35 and £75), which you can prearrange.
