Glen Ord Distillery

Nestled on the outskirts of Muir of Ord, Glen Ord Distillery is one of the Highland's hidden treasures producing liquid gold all year round. With a welcome as warm as the whisky, you'll be sure to leave satisfied after experiencing the world-famous Scottish hospitality at this 5* visitor attraction. Open all year, Glen Ord offers a range of tours to suit everyone; from the whisky novice to the connoisseur.

Reviewed By MrsMDevon - Plymouth, United Kingdom

My husband went on the Glen Ord tour which 45 minutes long, it started with an exhibition in the visitor centre about the history of the distillery which was informative. He was then taken around the distillery which he was then shown the main parts of the distillery process but there was nothing new on the tour that you would get if you'd visited a different distillery for a tour. So there was nothing distinctive about the tour, he had previously been on the Dalwhinnie tour and this tour felt very similar as to be expected as they are both part of the same group. An explanation of how the casks are reconditioned was given which was new information for him. The tasting involved tasting 3 whiskies and taking home a dram glass.

On the spur of the moment we hired a Katakanu for the hour and had the most fantastic time, as a family of four, paddling in the Loch. The kids particularly enjoyed it. Staff are friendly and laid back and I would say the hire...MoreMany thanks for coming along to try out our katakanus at Loch Lomond Shores. It's a great place to have a bit of fun on the water with the family. Thanks too for taking the time to give us a review. Much appreciated, Calum.

A team of volunteers feed the birds every day and you can watch them feed from the comfort of a specially-converted farmstead building. Tollie Red Kites is a partnership between RSPB Scotland and the Brahan Estate. Entry by donation, suggested £5.

Hidden in the middle of farmland up a rutted, potholed road this site has an excellent visitor centre and plenty of parking. Now has a toilet on site as well.You can wander around during normal daylight hours and the warden comes to feed the kites once a day at 2pm. The day we visited there were 4 kites wheeling round but nothing came down to eat - not even the gulls, so we had reasonable views but not good photography.
I had expected more kites along the lines of Gigrin Farm. The warden was excellent in talking to everyone and it's good that they are being fed and that they're working with local landowners not to persecute them.
Wouldn't make the effort again to go and see them, but if you're in the area then it might be worth it.

Always worth stopping in Strathpeffer, it has a unique charm. Parking at the old station you can fortify yourself at the delicious coffee shop then sample the delights of Embrace which does just that, welcoming you to enjoy it's wide range of gifts ,cards, jewellery,art and other treasures. All are displayed very artistically while allowing comfortable browsing to relaxing music. I always come away with a few 'finds', intended as gifts, though you just have to treat yourself sometimes! Before you know it you'll be skipping back along the station platform, swinging your pink bag!
Enjoy!

Reviewed By oscar505 - San Diego

With high expectations from all the great TA reviews, I went to Aigas as part of a Road Scholar group - and Aigas met and exceeded all those expectations. My previous 2 weeks in Scotland had been as part of a photo tour that was long on photo ops, but extremely light on information about history, geology, lore, ecology, etc etc. The wonderfully trained, articulate and enthusiastic rangers at Aigas filled in all the gaps and then some.
Sir John's lecture about the history of the Highlands brought the Jacobite Rebellion and so much more into sharp focus, with application to US history and today's world situations. I could have listened for another hour. Lady Lucy's concern for the needs of her guests and the dietary peculiarities of each one make the meals a delight, and she, Hermione and the rest of the staff make it clear they will do their best to make everyone's stay as wonderful as they can. And everything is done with such ease and grace.
Thanks to all for a wonderful stay. I am sending my friends (and maybe will sneak back with one of them)!

Exquisite Scotland Day Tours

Reviewed By Hawkeye-490 - Jerusalem, Israel

My wife and I have traveled extensively and know that having a local guide take you around greatly enhances the experience and is well worth the expense. We arranged for K. Thomson to guide us around the northeast Scotland for three days, after Reading Tripadvisor reviews. K is an amazing guide and an amazing person. He speaks five languages, has an encyclopedic knowledge of not just Scotland but just about everything else as well! We just loved travelling with him in his van, and learning about Scottish history, archeology, nature, and politics. He took us to some interesting and out-of-the way spots that are off the tourist trail. K knows the best eateries and ice-cream parlors, where you can picnic, and where to go to spot wildlife. He helped arrange our accommodations and his choices were excellent. For the cruisers out there, he will do pick up at the Invergordon cruise terminal. I can't recommend his enough, and we're already planning another trip next year to have him show us another part of Scotland.
