Just 6 miles down the road from our Newtonmore Bed & Breakfast is Dalwhinnie Distillery. Open year round; with shorter hours in the winter, it’s a great chance for you to find out all about “The Water of Life”. 

You might also want to pop in to the Cairngorm Brewery, an enlightening trip, just up the road in Aviemore. You might also be lucky and get on to one of the tours of the Speyside Distillery just east of Kingussie. They also have a Visitor Centre in Aviemore, The Snug, offering tastings of malts and gins, gifts and an art gallery. 

A little further afield you can spend a full day exploring The Speyside Whisky Trail, with its excellent selection of distilleries. 

Another thing you shouldn’t miss is a tour round The Speyside Cooperage – watching the craftsmen hand making the oak casks in the centuries old traditional way.
