DELICACIES & DISTILLERIES
IN THE HIGHLANDS
Loch Fyne is a ten minute drive past Inveraray and is renowned across the country for its delicious fresh fish. Here, you’ll find a fish shop, a deli shop and a very good restaurant.
This famous, family-run smokery is just 15 minutes from Glen Strae and is definitely worth a visit to pick up some of the finest smoked fish in Scotland. There is also a small museum and an opportunity to see the fish being smoked. More information can be found on the Inverawe website.
Oban Whiskey Distillery
There are several whiskey distilleries to be found across the highlands. The most local to us is of course the Oban distillery, which is one of the oldest in Scotland, and is situated in the heart of Oban itself. There is also a very good whiskey shop in the town selling all other brands. You can visit the distillery’s visitor centre and see first hand the traditional craftsmanship of whisky production, before enjoying a few complimentary drams.
Head to Oban’s harbour to buy and eat the freshest sea fish money can buy.
