Towns & Villages

    Set amongst the dramatic mountain scenery in Badenoch, the small village of Dalwhinnie is a good base for exploring the countryside.

    The town lies at the head of Loch Etricht and is surrounded by the magnificent mountains. Ben Alder is nearby and makes for a great walking experience.

    The town’s principal attraction is the old distillery in the north end of town. Set in a beautifully kept white-walled complex of buildings, the distillery is home to the famous Dalwhinnie Single Malt Scotch and is a part of the Diageo Range. Looking over the flat base of Glen Truim from the height of 1,154 ft above sea level, the distillery boasts the highest elevation for a working distillery in all of Scotland and provides a delightful visitors’ centre offering tours with a wee dram all year round.

    A little further on the main route north are the larger villages of Kingussie and Newtonmore.
