The malt whisky capital of the world!

Home > Explore > Moray > NE250 > Dufftown

Dufftown is firmly on the Speyside Whisky trail, even though it is several miles from the River Spey. It sits on the River Fiddich and the Dullan Water.

It features several high profile distilleries, including the world’s best-selling malt whisky Glenfiddich.

The four main streets meet at the central clock tower, which was built in 1839 as the town jail. It was latterly a tourist information centre, but is now empty.

Dufftown proclaims itself to be the “Malt Whisky Capital of the World’ featuring several high-profile distilleries, a whisky museum, and of course surrounded by barley fields which grow the essential grain for production.

Just outside Dufftown are the ruins of Balvenie Castle, cared for by Historic Environment Scotland.
