Four distilleries in tiny Speyside town
Rothes is deep in the heart of Speyside and the nearby villages of Aberlour and Craigellachie make this part of Speyside very much a part of the whisky-lovers itinerary.
With four distilleries in the tiny town, you could be excused for spending most of your day here if you want to experience the spirit of Scotland.
The four distilleries in Rothes are:
- Glen Grant
- Glen Spey
Glen Grant is perhaps the one most people will visit. They have an excellent visitor centre and Victorian gardens.
Standing high upon the hill above the town is the remains of Rothes Castle. Now only a single wall, but its elevated position gives views over the town, and that sense of history you can only get from being ‘inside’ a ruined castle.
