It’s incredibly easy to find yourself on The Malt Whisky Trail with direct links via air, rail, and road. The Malt Whisky Trail experience provides all the escape of the country with none of the hassle – which is perfect for that last minute road trip.

By car

Driving to The Malt Whisky Trail is also a beautiful experience. The Trail is accessible via the A9 and A95 trunk roads. When you start to see our famous brown signs with the ‘pagoda’ symbol, you’ll know you’re on The Trail.

By bus

Buses from elsewhere in Scotland can be taken to Inverness, Aberdeen and Aviemore. In Moray itself, you can travel by bus on the local Stagecoach network.

The Malt Whisky Trail towns of Keith, Elgin, and Forres lie on the main train line, providing easy access from Edinburgh and Glasgow.
