Badachro Distillery near Gairloch is truly off the beaten track, but you won't regret visiting this incredibly remote and beautiful part of Scotland. The best part is that you can just relax and enjoy the amazing scenery while your driver gets you safely from your accommodation to your next tasting.
Distillery owners Gordon and Vanessa are wonderful hosts, and their copper still, Delilah, produces excellent gin using local botanicals from the hillside and coast.
You'll hear about the selection of botanicals, how they are collected from the local area, the distilling process and the story of how Badachro went from dream to reality, before paying a visit to Delilah and sampling some of this increasingly renowned Scottish gin.
After your distillery tour and tasting experience, you'll head to Torridon for the night. Don't miss the wild and wonderful beach at Red Point on your way down. If you want some truly spectacular views, ask your driver to head to Applecross via the notorious Bealach na Bà. The destination is well worth the time and trouble, with views to die for, and the journey itself is an adventure you'll remember for a lifetime! What better way to experience this than with a skilled professional driver at the wheel who is familiar with all the quirks of Scottish roads.
We recommend taking the coastal route back to Torridon via Shieldaig - the views out to the Isle of Skye, Raasay and Rona are out of this world, and in the summer months you may even be lucky enough to spot whales and dolphins as you go. You'll find it much easier to keep a lookout with a chauffeur at the wheel - you can concentrate on trying to spot fins among the waves!
