Situated just outside the small market town of Crieff, in beautiful rural Perthshire, the Glenturret Distillery is a fantastic hidden gem. Nestled among the trees and with the Turret river running alongside it, you get a sense of what it may have been like for illicit distillers making whisky out of sight from the excise man in years gone by. And this is not the only thing about Glenturret that gives you an insight into whisky making history. Whisky production has been taking place on the banks of the Turret since at least 1775, making it the oldest working Distillery in Scotland. This heritage shines from every aspect of the Distillery’s walls, and when you join a tour, you’ll see this in the methods used, from the Douglas Fir washbacks, to cutting the spirit by hand and by eye; not a computer in sight!
Once your first distillery visit is completed you will make your way into the Trossachs, driving by Loch Earn and Loch Lubnaig. While enroute you are able to stop and take advantage of the stunning views, with plenty of photo opportunities and a walk along the banks of one of our famous Lochs.
