Always enjoy visiting distilleries and also having a wee dram at the same time, good historical detail as well as a good informative tour. Well worth spending a couple of hours finding it and getting involved.

We really enjoyed a tour of the distillery during our stay in Kirkwall. The Viking Soul tour for £10 was decent value and included a couple of wee drams and a whisky tasting glass each.
