The Dalmore Distilliery

Located in Alness  just 25 south from our hotel on the banks of the Cromarty Firth overlooking the Black Isle, the “big meadowland” from which bit takes its name. The award winning distillery creates a number of different whiskies that are produced in a combination stills, of various sizes which gives the whisky a more complex character. In 1867 the distillery was bought by Andrew and Charles Mackenzie and brought with them the iconic 12-pointed Royal Stag emblem, the caberfeidh which has adorned every bottle of The Damore since.

Clynelish Distillery

Just 16 miles north from our hotel, Clynelish is one of the most northerly distilleries in Scotland. Built in 1819 by the 1st Duke of Sutherland at a cost of £750, the distillery uses spring water from the Clynemilton Burn which runs over seams of gold embedded in the rocks of the nearby hills and results in a fruity, slightly smoky single malt Scotch Whisky. Tours, a visitor centre and a shop are available on site.

Old Pulteney

Old Pulteney is one and half hours drive north from our Hotel on the rugged coastline of the town of Wick. Set in the former herring capital of Europe, the distillery produces a 12 year-old single malt otherwise known as The Maritime Malt – a blend that is influenced and inspired by the seafaring heritage of its surroundings. Tours and a shop are available on site.
