New whisky trail combines four Scottish island destilleries

10 August, 2018

The Hebridean Whisky Trail has been formed on the Scottish islands of Skye, Raasay and Harris.

The 115-mile route will connect the Isle of Raasay Distillery, Torabhaig Distillery, Talisker Distillery and Isle of Harris Distillery and Karen Betts, Scotch Whisky Association CEO, will launch the trail on 15 August at Raasay Distillery

Alasdair Day, co-founder of Raasay Distillery said: “The Hebridean Whisky Trail offers an opportunity for visitors to experience the rich culture, provenance and landscape of three of the Scotland's Hebridean Islands; Harris, Raasay and Skye while visiting four very different Scotch Whisky distilleries”

Talisker is the oldest distillery on the trail while Isle of Raasay, which began production in 2017, is the youngest.

The new trail can be accessed by road or by sea with three ferry crossings linking the destinations. By sea, the trail can be charted clockwise or anti-clockwise around Skye and road travelers can begin by crossing over the Skye Bridge at Kyle, or start at the trail’s northernmost point on Harris or southernmost point, at Torabhaig on Skye’s Sleat peninsula.
