Attraction details
Owner description: Clynelish Distillery is located on the A9 at the popular coastal holiday town of Brora, Sutherland, around one hour north of Inverness. With beautiful views of the North Sea and the hills to the north - where the Clynemilton burn runs over seams of gold in the rock. With this water, Clynelish distillery produces a fruity, waxy, slightly smoky single malt.

At the end of a long whisky cycling tour we came to the pretty Clynelish distillery; beautiful, set amongst the green of the valley and blue of the sea. Helpful and welcoming staff, with Ciara taking our tour. Ciara was fantastic, delivering a tour with passion and enthusiasm both for the local spirit and the local history. She was knowledgable about the technical elements, and voiced and opinion about the spirit which was charming. 4.5/5 for style.

Our tour guide was young but full of knowledge she was engaging throughout, we were given 3 whiskys to try along with 3 chocolates to accompany the tasting, all were excellent. I must mention the staff who saved the day for us after we failed to get a taxi from the train station, Dad my 2 brothers and i set out to walk the 25 minutes or so to the distillery, Dad was struggling a little and told us to continue, the staff on finding this out used there own cars (in fact it was almost a race to see which one of the girls could find there car keys first)to not only pick up our Dad but to also drop him off back at the station after the tour, Thank you all for your kindnesss.

We would have liked the guide to talk les of what she drinks and more facts about whisky. We made tours at several Destilleries and this was under standard. Sorry!

A very informative tour by friendly guide and finished off with tasting with chocolates. The £12 is well worth it. Was pleasantly surprised by how good a whiskey is produced here.
