Is The Malt Whisky Trail suitable for children?
Although we think Moray Speyside is an excellent family holiday destination, our sites are involved in whisky production so there may be some age restrictions for visitors and we would advise you check with the individual sites before you visit. If you want to find out more about visiting the region with children, head to Visit Moray Speyside.
How long does it take to travel The Malt Whisky Trail?
The beauty of The Malt Whisky Trail is that you can see as much or as little of it as you want, depending on the time you have available. Even if you visit only one of our sites, you are still on The Trail. We have nine sites in total, and would recommend spending around 2 hours at each. Our sites are all between 15 minutes and 50 minutes’ drive from each other, so it would be easy to see two or three in one day.
But remember there’s much more to the area , with wonderful restaurants and bars, beautiful walks and world-renowned outdoor pursuits to take part in so you could easily make a trip to The Trail last anywhere between 3 and 7 days depending on your interests.
Can you recommend somewhere to stay/eat?
Of course! We have more information about local accommodation options, the best restaurants, cafes and bars in the area as well as things to see and do in our Experiences guides.
What are the current COVID-19 restrictions?
At present, the Scottish Government is using a levels-based approach to COVID-19 restrictions.
The Malt Whisky Trail is in Moray, which is currently in level 1.
Our sites have all introduced their own COVID-19 safe procedures, and this does mean there is a limited offering at some sites at present. For up to date information please check the Trail Site pages.
