Dufftown Distilleries Walk


Get off the tourist track! Discover the Malt Whisky Capital of the World - with a local!

The renowned Dufftown Distilleries Walk is a relaxed walking tour around the past and present distillery sites of Dufftown. Drink in the history, the surroundings and of course samples from the distilleries themselves! This tour allows access to otherwise closed distilleries as well as the opportunity to taste some rather rare drams! Please remember your walking shoes. We will walk 6km in total, if this is a problem for you please get in touch.

When they taste whiskies with specially chosen hand made chocolates from Scotland's premier chocolatier, Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier they change their minds.

We are now including the Iain Burnett Dark Velvet Truffle, recently awarded as the WORLD's Best Dark Chocolate Truffle. DURATION 3.5Hrs. COST £34.

Please note there is no Parkmore single malt whisky - never has been! Instead I give you a whisky that I like!
