Ballindalloch Castle and Gardens

Nestled deep in the beautiful Spey valley, Ballindalloch Castle has been the home of the Macpherson-Grant family since 1546. This Castle and gardens is not a distillery but is definitely worth a visit.

Tormore Distillery

The Tormore is one of the younger Scottish whiskies, the distillery construction began in 1958 and was completed in 1960. It was the first new distillery to be built in the country in the 20th century..
