Tomatin Distillery is looking forward to welcome in excess of 20,000 visitors to its new look visitor centre this summer.

It follows a £150,000 investment in upgrading the popular tourist attraction.

As well as extensive refurbishment and brand new facilities, a new feature within the Visitor Centre is the chance to pour and label your own limited bottle of Tomatin whisky.

The distillery tour has also been improved, so much so that the distillery is also celebrating its upgraded VisitScotland rating to four stars.

While the tour previously offered limited access, visitors will now see more of the production areas of the distillery.

Marie Macleod, Tomatin Visitor Centre Manager, is delighted with their new look.

She said: ”Following the refurbishment, the visitor centre now looks much brighter and more inviting.

"We’ve had great customer feedback since we started the new tour, which was emphasised with the great result following our mystery guest visit from VisitScotland!

"Our distillery manager, Graham Eunson, also had the great idea of opening up the side of one of our disused mash tuns to let visitors see the inside, an added extra which is unique to Tomatin Distillery and has also been a wonderful success so far.”
