Highland Distillery Tours and Tastings

Usquabae, meaning “The Water of Life” is the impressive moniker given to Scotland’s greatest export – Scotch Whisky. In our beautiful corner of the world, mastering the single malt is more than just a way of life. Home to 47 distilleries, the iconic Highland Whisky region boasts a diverse range of styles, from rich and textured to mellow and fruity.

Being in the heart of the Highlands Whisky Region, Ness Walk is the perfect hub to explore the nearby distilleries. So, here’s an introduction to just a few of the best distilleries in Scotland, right on our doorstep.

Tomatin Distillery

Just a few miles south of Ness Walk lies our closest whisky neighbour, the award-winning Tomatin Distillery. Offering a ‘softer side to the Highlands’, this distillery produces a collection of beautiful mellow and fruity drams. A delight for the palate.
