Whisky tasting at Craigellachie Whisky Bar

This evening, I am posting information on the small village ( pop 450 ) of Craigellachie which lies in the heart of the Speyside region of Scotland, about 55 miles east of Inverness.

The name translates as ‘crag of the rocky place’.

Sitting at the confluence of the rivers Spey and Fiddich, Craigellachie is synonymous with Scotland’s whisky industry. Within just a few miles radius can be found:

All of the above welcome visitors. Craigellachie has a Dewars distillery operating within the village but this is not open to the public.

Other whisky related sites include:
