We visited recently and took a tour with our guide, Jamie, who was wonderful! We learned a great deal about scotch, never felt rushed, asked lots of questions, and ended with a great tasting!

A nice distillery with a variety of whiskies. The tastings were a bit pushy and quite expensive. The shop was much better, got some help and good advise and got out satisfied. The only reason to feel sorry was the tastings' part

We stopped at Blair Athol Distillery as part of a tour. Our guide was enthusiastic, humourous and informative. He obviously has a passion for his job and the distilling process. The Scotch was heavenly!

Not sure if you need to book. It was very quiet in early Feb when we went. Tour lasts bout 45 mins and they do them every hour.

Based on the last 2 years its been open on the 29th of December, so I would be pretty confident it would be the same this year.
