While driving up the A9 in Scotland, I noticed a sign for the Dalwhinnie distillery, and thought it would be rude not to drop in given we were so close. The distillery is just a short detour from the A9, and is easy to reach if you follow the signs, the white painted buildings being easy to see as you approach.
There is a large car park with plenty of space, although it seems to get busy with coach tours at times so you might get caught in the crowds. That said, the visitors center is reasonably spacious, and there is plenty of whiskey on offer, together with a bar where you can buy a small taste of the whiskey before going for the whole bottle.
I didn’t have time to take the tour, as I arrived near closing time, however I did manage to get hold of a bottle of two of their products, well worth the visit for that alone!
