A visit to Glen Ord Distillery, on the edge of the Black Isle in the Highlands near to Inverness and Loch Ness, is a delight to both the eye and the palate. Watch the distillers create a magical malt whisky which is sweet, fruity and subtly spicy on the palate. Visitors are also welcome to browse the shop and exhibition.
Glen Ord distillery was founded in 1838, making it one of the oldest in Scotland. Situated on the edge of the Black Isle west of Inverness, Glen Ord continues to malt its own barley and to use the long fermentation and slow distillation methods followed there for generations.
From Glen Ord distillery it is a short drive to a wide variety of attractions. To learn about the history of the area visit Dingwall or Inverness museums, Culloden Battlefield and Fort George. For castles it is only a short drive to Urquhart Castle on the shores of Loch Ness with Cawdor, Dunrobin & Eilean Donan Castles also worth a visit.
