The Garioch is the Granary of Aberdeenshire - famous for it's superb cereal crop and most importantly - Barley! For this reason we have the highest quality Distilleries on our doorstep - and we can take you round them on the Garioch Tour.
The Garioch Whisky Tour encapsulated this little known but historically vital part of Aberdeenshire. From Robert the Bruce to Donald, Lord of the Isles, from Bonnie Prince Charlie to Mary, Queen of Scots they have all taken their turn to shape the landscape not just of the Garioch but Scotland as a nation.
It also houses the most fantastic distilleries. One of the oldest, and the Easternmost is Glengarioch home of the Glen Garioch distillery and winner of 2018's Bronze place in the Whisky Visitor Attraction of the Scotch Whisky Awards. A rare find indeed and a great dram too!
GlenGlassaugh distillery lends itself to perhaps the most picturesque location for a distillery. Sitting on the cliffs above Sandend Beach, you can often see dolphins in the sea. Smell and listen to the Moray Firth as it calmly serenades you into your glass of whisky.
Portsoy is one of the oldest towns on the Moray Firth and is home to it's oldest harbour. Also famous as the location for the remake of the movie 'Whisky Galore' - sit in the famous bar, dine with the locals who starred in the film and see other locations made famous by this movie while we stop for lunch.
