Dreaming of a wee dram of Scotch? There's no better place to drink the uisge beatha (Gaelic for "water of life") than in its birthplace. Travelers with a taste for single malts can take in spectacular, emerald-green scenery; mysterious peat bogs; and mist-capped mountains as they discover distilleries scattered from the Highlands to the Lowlands, from Glasgow to the ruggedly beautiful island of Islay. Get ready to bust out your tartan—we're taking you on a tour of Scotland's 10 best places to enjoy Scotch whisky.
