  • The distillery is pretty. For those who have never seen a is very nice to go and visit it. Very particular since nn I ever seen one either. Only minus the guided tour. Part with a video that does little laugh but makes you understand a little how the whisky. The guide though was not great as you don't mind people and not smiling even.

  • Worth a visit if passing. Just finished a tour of this distillery. Very informative and interesting. Nice to be able to try the whiskies also. Knowledgeable friendly staff. Thank you.
  • I'd review the whisky quality and the distillery more of a 2-star. Whisky is cheap and bland, and the distillery feels incredibly dated. The redeeming factor was their younger tour guide who was very informative and nice. At the time they were not producing any whisky so fortunately we've been to tours, otherwise it'd be a bummer to not actually see the production happening. You can safely pass on this distillery.
  • Selection of excellent Malts and Blends. Rich in colour and intensity, but smooth on the palate. Small restaurant beside shop. Tour well worth while . A Must visit if in the area.
  • Excellent variety of very good whisky. Malts and Blends. Rich in colour and flavour, stimulating on the palate. A Must if in the area. Also a good restaurant.
  • Great way to kill some time on a rainy day! Informative and fun, great little gift shop too!

Where to stay in Fort William

A B&B along the high street provides access to pubs and cultural life. However, luxury hotels set among idyllic countryside are outside the city center. Consider a stay inside a refurbished historical building at one of the handful of guesthouses. less expensive lodging is also available in scenic areas within walking distance of the high street, or main street.
