Day two of the Spirit of Speyside whisky festival, April 27. After a good night’s rest and a wonderful breakfast, we decided to visit a nearby distillery, Glen Grant. Just a couple of minutes walking distance from The Station Hotel, you can’t miss the sign at the roundabout. As we were a bit early, for the visitor center opened at 9.30 am, we agreed to discover the surroundings of the distillery.
Glen Grant is well known for its beautiful garden and despite the weather, it was still stunning to set eyes on the Victorian inspired influences.
