As you can see the distillery is at the end of a country lane, just off the main road out of Kirkwall. I use ‘major’ loosely here as while the roads are well maintained on the island, compared to the Scottish mainland there are no motorways or dual carriageways. Such is the welcome pace of life and traffic on Orkney. It is effortless driving and extremely easy to criss-cross the islands at a rapid pace. It is just a shame that unlike Islay, there aren’t more whisky adventures to be had here. While I will write in future instalments about the Highland Park experience, visiting Orkney and some new bottles. Scapa still warrants a mention.
