We had 2 nights in Inverness, and for both nights we found ourselves gravitating to this bar for whiskey. This is a must visit for travellers for the variety and for the vibe. The ambience is great and we had a great time.

We enjoyed ourselves at The Malt Room. Their selections and pairing of snacks (yes chocolates) was quite interesting. I have been travelling and tasting scotch whiskey's for a long time, and this place definitely adds a nice twist and atmosphere to it! Highly recommended.
