On the whisky trail of Speyside, you’ll find more than half of Scotland’s malt whisky distilleries, each with its own warm welcome and an invitation to see, smell, taste and absorb the magic of whisky.
In August 2007 The Crown Estate and the Glenlivet Distillery in Speyside launched three historic walks in the beautiful surroundings of the Glenlivet valley to give visitors a flavour of its illicit whisky smuggling past.
