Talisker DistilleryLearn about Scottish poet Robert Louis Stevenson's favorite whisky on a tour of this distillery, founded in 1830.
The journey to Carbost, partially along the coastal road, is worthwhile for the views of the jagged Cuillin mountains and eagles soaring overhead.
The site tour sheds light on the traditional production process, which uses copper pot stills, worm pots ("worm" refers to the coiled copper tubes) and oak casks, and includes a tasting of the famous full-bodied single malt.
