Here you are guided around the distillery by the staff and finish with a dram of the amber nectar. After the distillery we drive back down the island, viewing the jagged Cuillin Hills which can sometimes be spectacular. Alternatively if whisky is not be your thing, we can take the winding Glen Brittal road towards the Fairy Pools. The Fairy Pools are a natural waterfall phenomenon in Glen Brittle, on the Allt Coir' a' Mhadaidh rivier. The vivid blues and greens of the pools suggest an unnatural origin, hence their name. A wonderful place to spend the afternoon walking and making memories.
