Scotland’s oldest working distillery and welcomes visitors for their very interesting distillery tours. These give visitors a wonderful view of the traditional method of whisky making. Its secluded location hidden deep in a Perthshire glen is believed to be what contributed to its early history as a site for several illicit bothy stills. The surrounding high hills were deemed to be the perfect look out point for the smugglers.
