Enjoy a true taste of the Scottish isles
Take the Glenapp Castle boat to the famous distilleries of Islay and the Mull of Kintyre
Get to know the tastes
For many of our guests a visit to Scotland would not be complete without sampling the national spirit and maybe learning more about how the unique tastes of the different distilleries is created. Connoisseurs will be aware of the wide variety of whiskies available and the castle has its own extensive selection of malts for guests to choose from.
An authentic experience
How much more enticing would it be to take the Glenapp Castle boat out to the Mull of Kintyre and Islay, two of the most important whisky producing locations in Scotland, to visit the distilleries and sample their produce on the premises? Our boat regularly undertakes the journey to the Ardbeg distillery on Islay and can be booked for groups of up to eight. Closer to Glenapp in Kirkoswald, the whisky bottlers, A. D. Rattray has established its own ‘Whisky Experience’ allowing visitors to test the blends that they bottle and of course take some home.
