Whisky Adventures in Scotland
Tour distilleries as part of a whisky break
A whisky-inspired break with Crerar Hotels encompasses some of the oldest, most-renowned distilleries in Scotland, with the Malt Whisky Trail a popular activity.
From the Highlands, through Grantown-on-Spey, down to Argyll, you'll find a number of distilleries a short drive, cycle or walk from your hotel. Many offer expert-led tours and a chance to sample the 'the water of life,' or 'uisge beatha' as it's known in Gaelic.
After a day exploring and dinner made from the finest local produce, you can put your feet up in one of our homely bars and enjoy a dram by the fire. Each hotel has its own extensive whisky menu showcasing a selection of single malts and much loved blends, including Crerar Hotels' own whisky blend, Heart & Soul.
So whether you're a real whisky buff looking for something extra special in your next break, or a novice looking to dive into this rich world, try making one of our hotels your base for a whisky adventure.
Experience some of the finest malt whiskies in the country in the distilleries around Argyllshire, including Oban Bay Distillery, Isle of Jura and Loch Lomond Distillery, before retiring to Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa’s restaurant and bar, Cladach Mor, to sample a dram with some of the region’s wonderful seafood.
Take a trip to Royal Lochnagar Distillery on the Abergeldie Estate, in the shadow of Lochnagar Mountain and beside Balmoral Castle – it’s been ‘Royal’ ever since Queen Victoria visited and sampled a dram of single malt. Afterwards, you can relax with a dram of your own in front of the fire in the Deeside Inn’s Ceilidh Bar.
