When asked what makes you think of Scotland – whiskey isn’t usually far off peoples first answer.  So it is no wonder that Scotland has a one of a kind trail to follow. You will not find another like the Malt Whiskey Trail in the world. With no less than seven world famous distilleries on this route you will not be disappointed. With a Scottish Tourer motorhome you have the freedom and ability to discover all of these, or some at your own leisure. These famous, historic and memorable distilleries are found in the Speyside countryside, also known worldwide as the “Malt Whiskey Country”.  The area is one of 5 Whiskey regions in Scotland.
