Scapa

Distillery in Kirkwall

Two miles south of Kirkwall's centre, on the shores of Scapa Flow, this is one of two Orcadian whisky distilleries and, though less famous than Highland Park, produces a quality, well-balanced, delicate malt. It offers a standard tour, which includes a dram, and an 'experience' tour (£20), which gives you three to taste and the chance to draw a dram from the cask. Call ahead to book a spot.
