From Elgin, venture south towards the river Spey, and pass several distilleries that prove how much the industry has dominated the area for generations. 
 
Next, arrive at Glenfiddich Distillery in the famous town of Dufftown, home to seven whisky distilleries. This distillery produces the largest quantity of whisky in Scotland. This historic distillery was created by a famous whisky pioneering family and the traditions and age of the site are evident. Enjoy an extensive tour and a tasting of the core range of Glenfiddich’s delicious whiskies.
 
Near to the distillery are the historic ruins of Balvenie Castle. Get a photo of the castle before you leave. Or, if you’ve had enough whisky for the day, you can skip the Glenfiddich tour and venture into the ruins.
 
Your journey back to Inverness follows the river Fiddich to Craigellachie where you should be able to stop for a photo of the Speyside Cooperage.
 
The last leg of the journey takes you through the lovely scenery of Strathspey with views of the Cairngorm mountains.
