Travel by road and sea through iconic island landscapes, where elements of ocean, mountain, Norse and Gaelic are distilled into whiskies of special character.
Here, a warm Hebridean welcome awaits you at four very different distilleries sharing one common trait: the passion to create the finest island single malt whisky.
Begin your Hebridean Whisky Trail in the South by road across the Skye Bridge or by sea across the Sound of Sleat on the Mallaig to Armadale ferry. Either way leads to your first destination stop at Torabhaig Distillery.
Start your Hebridean Whisky Trail in the East by road, across the Skye bridge then just fifteen minutes to the Sconser ferry terminal and the short scenic crossing to the Isle of Raasay Distillery.
Go West. Drive past Sconser to Sligachan then left to historic Talisker Distillery on the shores of scenic Loch Harport in the village of Carbost.
In the North start your journey to the Isle of Harris Distillery by ferry, crossing from Uig to Tarbert or from Ullapool to Stornoway. Or fly direct to Stornoway from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.
With its scenic island ferry routes, Caledonian MacBrayne lets you plan your Hebridean Whisky Trail at your own pace, either in a vehicle or as a foot passenger. Relax onboard as you sail between distilleries and savour the spectacular mountain and sea views. Sailings are from Mallaig to Armadale, Sconser to Raasay and Uig to Tarbert.
Alternatively book all your journeys on one flexible Hopscotch™ ticket. These are valid for 31 days from the date of your first journey and can be used in either direction on your chosen route. For further information and how to book visit www.calmac.co.uk or call +44 (0) 0800 066 5000.
