After a morning visit to Aberlour Distillery for a tutored tour and tasting, definitely one of the best tours available in Scotland and very in-depth, we head off to Dufftown the home of seven distilleries.
In Dufftown we can stop for a bite of lunch and possibly a look through the whisky shops. This will be followed by a visit to the Speyside Cooperage where we can see them make and repair the casks used to store the whisky.
The day ends with a tour and tasting at Glenfarclas Distillery in Ballindalloch after which we return to our hotel in Grantown-on-Spey for a relaxing dinner and perhaps a dram or two before packing our bags for the return trip to Edinburgh the following day.
