Once you have staggered down from the windswept Castle, the warm interior of the Whisky Centre could not seem more attractive. The tour of the centre is, mercifully, mostly seated, and involves a series of films, demonstrations and a 'Barrel Ride' to explain the distillation of Scotland's national drink. Every visitor is given a wee dram to try, and is encouraged to indulge in one of the 300 varieties of whisky available in the bar at the end of the tour.
