We visited with around 25 people from a coach party. We were shown around by a young man who was very knowledgeable. The visitor centre is quite small with cafe, shop and toilets. The tour takes in the various areas involved in whisky production. There...More

We decided to visit the Ben Nevis Distillery whilst visiting Fort William. We had called before several years ago but only to buy a bottle of whiskey. We booked the tour which cost us £5. The tour lasted around 40 minutes and was really interesting....More
