A friend of mine is staying for a week a few miles from Tain, and is thinking of taking in a few distilleries if he can.
Seeing as the forumites have probably done most any recommendations?
Glenmorangie is an obvious choice.
Balblair is in the area also - but I don't think they normally allow visitors - except by special arrangement?
And as a guardian he might try and nip down to The Glenlivet, assuming he's remembered his key!
Dalmore and Glen Ord aren't too far away and both have visitor centres, but are they any good?
What others are worth a shout - Balvenie got a glowing write-up from Mr T, so he might be able to tag that on to a visit to The Glenlivet if his liver can stand the hospitality!
If it's any help he's done a few WLs now so is probably looking for something a little more than a ye olde wee history video and look at the shiny stills before sampling the 10YO in a bar come visitors shop.
TIA - Rufus.
