Whisky at the Kingsmills Hotel in Inverness

Callum Watt Maketh The ManTravelling around the Highlands of Scotland I was in need of a luxury hotel to rest my head, and sample a few fine whiskies.  I came across the splendid Kingsmills Hotel and Spa so quickly checked in as I heard they had a dedicated whisky bar that I just had to try.

However boy did he know his whisky. I was presented with a number of options and a deep explanation of where each whisky came from and how it was made. Kingsmills Hotel whisky bar InvernessI prompted for a couple of mid priced options and then splurged on an old single malt to finish the night.  The bar was busy with other people whilst I sat and enjoyed a few drams but the service through-out was excellent.
