Whisky in Strathspey

Strathspey Railway

The Strathspey area strictly speaking includes the whole Spey valley as it runs North-East From the North-west corner of the Cairngorms through the whisky trail towns of Aberlour and Fochabers. However the classicly beautiful and most commonly visited part of Strathspey is the area from Aviemore through Grantown-on-Spey and Boat of Garden. David Attenborough described this part of Scotland as one of his favourite parts of the world.

  • The area that Private House Stays defines as Strathspey includes the western end of The Whisky Trail. This is a term that seems to be a marketing exercise to encourage tours visiting the huge amount of distilleries that are located between Aberdeen and Inverness, but it can be a little confusing because there are a number of small (but still famous) brands that only occasionally or by special arrangement welcome visitors to see round the distillery sites. In order to help tourists we list the distillery names below approximately grouped around the nearest towns with telephone numbers and webisites for those that are most orientated around visitors. The section that refers to Strathspey is labelled as Around Grantown-on-Spey http://www.privatehousestays.com/blog/?p=1163
