To compliment the tour
The original distillery was first established by the Marquis of Stafford (Duke of Sutherland)
  in 1819
now called Brora, and with new distillery built in 1968 has taken the original name
The visit includes a look at both Distilleries

We then wind our way with a scenic drive to
"The Falls of Shin Visitor Centre"   


This is a truly wonderful experience for all the family
Set in the Achany Glen, amongst spectacular Highland scenery

When the glaciers melted after the last Ice Age in the UK , the Highland landscape was formed, creating Glens and Lochs. Erosion by debris, boulders and gravel led to the formation of the River Shin and the Falls of Shin which are a natural feature of the River, and are next to the visitor centre. 

Here you can watch from the viewing platform Atlantic Salmon

Battle to return to their place of birth to spawn the next salmon generation.

The visitor centre shop has a range of superb quality local crafts

Light refreshments such, morning coffee or afternoon tea, even a full three-course meal, the restaurant is open daily offering delicious seasonal, home made food.
And a chance to do some souvenir shopping in the Highlands

Falls of Shin now "WORLD RENOWNED" Banoffee Pie mmmmm! and a seasonal Strawberry version, double mmmmm ! !
