Talisker is the only big distillery on the Isle of Skye. There are regular tours where you can watch the distillers at work, creating good quality single malt whisky. There is an small admission charge which includes a dram before you start and a discount voucher, redeemable in the distillery shop. The shop can sell you a bottle of the usual, excellent, Talisker. It will also tempt you with some fairly expensive – but highly desirable – rarities. If you have a taste for the best whiskies, watch your credit card!
Note that children under eight are not able to take the tour.
The distillery is in Carbost at NG377319. The place called Talisker is a few miles away from here. It is good to visit as well, with a fine beach – but don’t go looking there for the distillery!
If you are ready for lunch when around here, decent basic pub food can be had close by at The Old Inn in Carbost.
