Stunning landscapes of hills, lochs and coastline make it a hugely popular tourist destination; the weather means it is not always a great idea to spend too much time outside.

Visitors flock to the capital Edinburgh as well as other historical and interesting areas such Glasgow, Stirling, Inverness and the Highlands.

One of Scotland’s biggest and best known exports is whisky, the drink contributes around £800million to the Scottish economy. The whisky industry is closely linked with tourism as many distilleries also function as tourist attractions.

It can be a fun and educational day out at a distillery and here is a look at just 10 picturesque whisky distilleries.
