There are many things Scotland excels in – self-deprecating humour, deep-fried “delicacies”, curling – but chief among them are ravishing scenery and world-beating whiskies. Combine the two for the quintessential weekend itinerary – whisky-tasting at some of the country’s most romantic, windswept and hard-to-reach distilleries. With a head-spinning selection of over 130 distilleries to choose from, we’ve bottled the best to put the dram in natural drama.

How about a selection of the Best Cosy Cabins in Scotland? Or maybe you’d prefer something a little… sturdier? Perhaps one of these Castle Hotels in Scotland That You Can Stay In? Of course, you may just prefer some old-fashioned luxury, the kind of thing you can find in our Most Luxurious Hotels to Book in Scotland article. Inspired by the sustainable Nc’nean Distillery? One of these Incredible Eco Lodges in Scotland could be the place for you.
