Skye's only whisky distillery and well worth a visit for the dram if nothing else.

A recommended trip for whisky drinkers, or if it's raining for anyone, is to the Talisker Distillery, at Carbost on the shores of Loch Harport, on the B8009 (not in the village of Talisker itself, which is on the west coast). This is Skye's only whisky distillery and produces a very smoky, peaty single malt. The informative tours last around 20-30 minutes and begin with a complimentary dram. Info - Apr-Jun Mon-Fri 0900-1630; Jul-Sep Mon-Sat 0900-1630; Oct Mon-Fri 0900-1630; Nov-Mar Mon-Fri 1400-1630. Tel. +44 (0)1471 614308, Fax. 640401, large groups need to book in advance.
