No, we haven’t had too much to drink and fudged the numbers. We’re going to bend the rules a little: both for the number of the best distilleries in Scotland on the list and their location.
The Isle of Raasay Distillery is located on, you guessed it, the Isle of Raasay. Due east of the Isle of Skye, you can easily visit Raasay by taking the CalMac Ferry from Sconser to Clachan.
The Isle of Raasay Distillery is less than a 10-minute walk from the port. It’s the first legal distillery on the isle which means its Isle of Raasay Single Malt and Isle of Raasay Gin bottles are full of local history.
Tours of the distillery are available, granting you a closer look at its copper pot stills and great views of the Cuillin Mountains across the water on the Isle of Skye. Those in the know will stay the night at the inn, though; overnight guests get exclusive access to the ground floor whisky lounge.
