Im going to Scotland next year and would love to visit some of the Scotch distilleries.
I have thought of going to Glenfiddich, but also want to know if anyone else there has been to visit other ones, and ones that they would recommend to visit.
Many thanks for this
Peace

Glenfiddich probably have the best visitor centre, and the area surrounding them in Dufftown has loads of other distilleries as well as the Speyside Cooperage.

But it depends where you are going in Scotland - most places on the tourist circuit will have a distillery offering tours.

Oban, Scapa on Orkney, talisker on Skye, glen ord just nw of Inverness, all good tours. Ben Nevis distillery tour in ft William is a bit cheesy. Most distilleries have websites with details of any tours.
