About the Region
The Highland whisky region of Scotland is the largest by far and stretches from Orkney in the far north to Lochranza on the Isle of Arran in the South West. The whisky produced in the Highlands varies from distillery to distillery and very unique in its production methods. The highland region is home to some of the larger distilleries we know in the everyday market. Glemorangie, Dalmore, Tullibardine and Oban as well as the not so well known Old Pulteney, Balblair, Glenturret and Glencadam to name a few. There are some very wild and remote areas of Scotland which is where you will find most highland distilleries. The Highland region is also split into mainland distilleries and Island distilleries but Island distilleries are fast becoming a region of their own so we have seperated the two on this website.
