We all know the weather in Scotland can be a little unpredictable, so if you find yourself caught out, we’ve got you covered (literally!). Consider following one of our Two Day itineraries, and add on the following.
Start your morning at the historic Dallas Dhu. Although whisky is no longer made on site, it’s the perfect place to learn all about the region’s heritage and how whisky turns from grain to glass. Or head towards Elgin where you can visit the ruined Elgin Cathedral or Spynie Palace, once home to the Bishops of Moray. Make sure not to miss the nearby Glen Moray, which has distilled in the Laich of Moray since 1897.
In the afternoon, head south to the village of Craigellachie, where you’ll find the fascinating Speyside Cooperage, or slightly further east to the famous whisky town of Dufftown where you can immerse yourself at the Glenfiddich visitor centre. Or pay a visit to the impressive medieval Balvenie Castle and pretend to be a knight in shining armour. Finally, follow the Keith – Dufftown heritage railway north and pay a visit to the historic and very beautiful Strathisla distillery, followed by a spot of shopping at Mither Tongue in Keith, which sells gifts rooted in the area’s traditional Doric dialect.
