Keith, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Additional Location Information
Keith is a small town on the banks of the River Isla between Aberdeen and Inverness at the heart of Scotland’s whisky trail and is a great base to explore the riches of north-east Scotland.
Speyside is famed for its malt whisky: the Chivas Regal distillery is only a 1-minute walk from Milton Cottage, and the Keith and Dufftown Railway links Keith with Dufftown, the malt whisky capital of the world, home to world-famous distilleries including Glenfiddich and The Balvenie. It is said that whereas Rome was built on seven hills, Dufftown stands on seven stills. The Speyside Cooperage at Craigellachie gives another slant on the whisky industry. See also Planet Whiskies.
Keith is well placed for long-distance walking routes, including the Speyside Way (which goes from Aviemore to Spey Bay) and the Isla Way, which passes through Keith itself.
Keith is only 9 miles from the coast, which has long sandy beaches, rocky coves, towering cliffs and picturesque villages.
Local shops include the Keith Kilt and Textiles Centre and the Mither Tongue Shop (which celebrates the Scots language).
Keith hosts a Traditional Music Festival each May and the Keith Country Show is a highlight of August.
Nearby Fochabers is home to Baxter’s Foods and Huntly to Dean’s shortbread, and there are many places to eat and drink in the vicinity; for example, the Boogie Woogie Shop and Bistro, The Steading, the Royal Hotel, Ugie House Hotel and La Faisanderie French restaurant.
Historical buildings include Milton Tower, Keith’s oldest building, which was the birthplace of St John Ogilvie (Scotland’s only post-Reformation saint), and nearby is the Secret Kirk: St Ninian's at Tynet, Scotland's oldest post-Reformation Catholic church.
