Leaving Dufftown we drive to Glenlivet and pass through the narrow gap guarded by the Bochel to enter the Braes of Glenlivet. This remote glen was reputed to have over two hundred illegal stills during the height of the whisky smuggling era. Three major whisky roads started from here enabling smugglers to transport their wares to the growing cities of the south and east.

Using Crown Estate tracks only available to specially authorised vehicles we explore the Braes of Glenlivet to discover how distillers and smugglers lived off the land in remote hillside bothies and on the whisky roads two hundred years ago.

This remote glen is home to deer, mountain hare, grouse and many other wild animals and plants that were essential to the survival of the forefathers of modern whisky production.

Join us for an unforgettable backcountry tour of the Braes of Glenlivet and sample a dram produced in this remote glen by the successors of those old time entrepreneurs. Tour starts and finishes at the Clock Tower in the centre of Dufftown.
