Welcome to the malt-whisky capital of the world
Speyside and its world famous distilleries attract millions of visitors from around the world every year. The trail covers seven working distilleries, the historic Dallas Dhu Distillery and Speyside Cooperage. The whole trail covers roughly 76.8 miles and most connoisseurs allow three days to complete it.
Dufftown is considered to be the very heart of the Speyside whisky region and home to the Speyside Cooperage and The Glenfiddich Distillery. Tullich House is located right in the midst of the whisky trail just 2.5 miles from The Glenfiddich and Balvenie Distilleries.
