    This little shop is full of surprises. The selection of single malt whiskies is astonishing. Not just distiller bottlings but they stock a vast variety from independent bottlers as well. We were intro...  more »

  • We were driving through the Cairngorms and after some whiskys to bring home for relatives so decided to stop off here. We purchased some local ones but also sampled some gin and purchased that too! We aren't into whisky but they were offering samples and happy to talk about them. Very friendly staff. Cafe nextdoor looked lovely too with homemade cakes.
  • Wasn't expecting much more than a tourist trap, but I was pleasantly surprised. We did not have any appreciation for whisky prior- but the enthusiasm and knowledge of the lady (brunette, name forgotten) put us on the right track to discovering how someone could. We had been to distilleries though out Scotland- many of these were tourist mills. Whisky Castle really took the time to let us sample a few whiskies, see a rare old whisky, and learn to appreciate part of Scotland's heritage. Visited in late Sept. Highly recommend a stop if in the area.
  • Amazing selection of privately bottled whiskies, generous tastings, knowledgeable staff. They will ship whisky home for you. Recommended.
  • Without a shadow of doubt the best whisky shop I've come across - and there have been a few :) Amazing selection in a lovely clean shop. The owners couldn't be nicer an absolute MUST visit if you're passing thru the Highlands!
  • Unbelievable amount of whiskey on offer! Very knowledge man, who we spend a hour with talking...with a lot of tasting too.
