A castle in Scotland

Malt Whisky in Scotland

Malt Whisky Trail

Car hire in Aberdeen gives you the freedom to enjoy everything that beautiful Aberdeenshire has to offer. Other than haggis, Scotland’s most famous product is whisky and driving the whisky trail around Speyside is a popular attraction. The trail takes in the region’s host of distilleries - from Benromach, the smallest, to the home of the world’s most popular single malt, Glenfiddich. If you can appoint a driver, sample ‘a wee dram’ and learn about the fascinating art of whisky-making.
