The Whisky Trails: Trail 5
The private collection of Sir William Burell Next trailPrevious trail

Central & Southern Highlands

From Glasgow or Edinburgh to Inverness

This is a consistently rewarding whisky trail, not only because nearly all of the distilleries are visitable and in highly attractive settings, but also because the scenery through which you pass progresses from the lovely to the dramatic. Itís well worth taking both the time and the trouble.

It is possible to embark upon this trail from either Glasgow or Edinburgh. Setting off in the west allows viewing Auchentoshan and Littlemill before moving on to Glengoyne; departure from the east, on the other hand, takes in Glenkinchie and its museum before heading for Glengoyne.

Above: The private collection of Sir William Burrell, a Glaswegian ship owner, was gifted to Glasgow and housed in a brand new building, designed by Barry Gasson and completed in 1983.
