North-East Coast

From Inverness to Macduff

This trail leads along the north-eastern shoulder of Scotland where, although all of the distilleries are within the Highland category, some of the whiskies show greater robustness and depth due to their being matured in the breezy, salty air of the Moray Firth.

It is a gentle landscape of farms, old Royal Burghs, golf courses and castles, an area long and populously settled due to the fertility of the soil and the equable climate. The church was well established here a thousand years ago and the sophistication of the building by the 13th century advanced and refined.

Above: Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, has grown up at the point where the River Ness empties into the Moray Firth.
