My boyfriend and I are staying at the Highlander Inn in Craigellachie in July. We will be there for 3 full days and would like to spend most of our time visiting distilleries and experiencing the “uisge beatha.” We will not have a car and love walking and hiking - we plan to spend one day hiking part of the Speyside way trail, either north towards Fochabers or south towards Ballindalloch.
Here is what I need to know 1) what distilleries can we reasonably expect to visit by foot from our location in Craigellachie and 2) should we go north or south on Speyside Way (we want a beautiful hike with the possibility of 1 or 2 distillery stops. 3) Anything else that you think might make our stay more enjoyable (restaurants or sights not to miss, etc.)
Thanks so much!!
