Royal Lochnagar Distillery, Crathie

Royal lochnagar single malt scotch whisky distillery tour balmoral scotland.JPG A visit to Royal Lochnagar, the local distillery to Balmoral, is a timeless experience. You can see distillers tending the traditional mashtun and the gleaming copper stills. The end product still relies on age old traditions and craftmanship to produce one of Scotland’s most exclusive whiskies. At the tour end, your complimentary dram will confirm that Royal Lochnagar is a malt whisky worthy of the ' Royal' prefix to its name. Royal Lochnagar is situated on the south side of the River Dee (on the B976), across the Balmoral Bridge and half a mile from the Crathie car park.
