A short drive north takes you to the ancient Royal Burgh of Tain, an attractive small town of grand whisky-coloured sandstone buildings and home to the Glenmorangie Distillery. ‘Glenmorangie’ in Gaelic means ‘glen of tranquillity’, a particularly appropriate description for its calm and scenic location. Enjoy a guided tour of the fascinating distillery that is famous for its highly rated malt whisky which is distributed around the world. During your leisurely visit, see demonstrations of traditional skills, before savouring a glass of this fine whisky.
Following the distillery visit, cross the Dornoch Firth via the low causeway bridge to the Royal Burgh of Dornoch. This historic 12th century town is a designated National Scenic Area in the Highlands of Scotland. Its tranquil location, scenery and climate have attracted visitors for decades. There will be time in this enchanting town to admire the many fine buildings which include the impressive medieval Cathedral, majestic 16th century Bishop’s Palace (now a hotel), courthouse and the Old Town Jail or you may prefer to wander down the peaceful streets lined with sandstone cottages and town houses or browse the series of enticing galleries and shops.
