Whisky casks at the Abhainn Dearg Distillery, Isle of Lewis
There are many ways to enjoy a dram in Scotland, whether it be in pub or bar next to a roaring fire or stopping in a distillery visitor centre as you journey around one of Scotland's regions. One of the best ways to discover whisky however is with a knowledgeable Scottish guide on an organised whisky tour.
Many of the country's distilleries now have visitor centres which offer behind the scenes tours for an up close and personal experience of whisky production. Taking in all the sights and smells of the distillation process, you'll see the distillery in action with the men and women behind Scotland's famous amber-coloured spirit hard at work.
There are tour companies who offer special organised whisky tours which take in several distilleries across Scotland's five whisky regions. These often include exclusive whisky tastings after hours in tasting rooms at the distilleries.
Alternatively, you can join an organised tour which combines a visit to a whisky distillery with many different elements of Scottish culture; from castles, golf and fine food and drink to staggeringly beautiful landscapes and the famously warm Scottish hospitality.
