Visit Blackford

You must visit Blackford, a small village in Perthshire which has become famous in these parts not only for its Highland games but also for the centuries old mineral water that is drawn from the base of the Ochil Hills.

Highland Spring is an internationally renowned mineral water and is bottled at two plants in the area.

A major attraction for whisky lovers is Tullibardine Distillery and retail outlet in the village. The Tullibardine Distillery is situated on the site of one of Scotland’s oldest breweries that dates back to the 12th century. It is said to have produced ale for the coronation of James IV at Scone in 1488. The site was mothballed in 1995, but reopened complete with its visitor centre as an independent company in 2003. Take the opportunity to enjoy a tour of the distillery and the chance to taste a fine malt produced in the foothills of the Ochils.
