Balblair Distillery

Posted on

No more than a fifteen minute drive from the B&B, nestled on the shores of the Dornoch Firth in the village of Edderton is Balblair Distillery. The distillery was founded in 1790, just ten years after the Old Manse was constructed, and has passed through various ownerships, the current owner having purchased it in 1996.

The distillery tour is well worth doing and of course at the end you get the chance to sample the amber nectar, for those driving a "take away" sample can be sort.

We stayed here for one night at the end of our NC500 journey and I can't recommend it highly enough. From the moment we parked our car to the moment we left the next morning we were made to feel at home. We were met with a cup of tea and a chat in the garden on arrival and our host, Neil and Linda, frequently made sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. They were attentive, friendly and more than accommodating and seemed like just genuinely nice people too. The room was lovely and spacious with a comfy bed and a well stocked tea tray with fresh milk on request. The guest lounge was a great place to relax and there were plenty of spaces to sit in the lovely garden when the weather is nice. Breakfast was delicious with great cakes made by the lovely Linda. The whole place felt like a luxury and yet felt like home. Thank you for a great stay
