Top 10 UK hotels for whisky lovers

There's nothing more joyful than a day spent walking around glorious countryside before returning for good food and better whiskey. Put the world to rights as you relax by a log fire or finish a sumptuous dinner with a dram (or two) - these are the inns, hotels and B&Bs that are a dream come true for whiskey lovers.

There's a Devon inn with around 240 whiskey variations - mainly malt and ever increasingly at cask strength, and a Manor House on the Speyside Malt Whisky Trail in Grantown-on-Spey. Spend a day on Scotland’s largest ski resort in Aberdeenshire, returning to log fires at a former hunting lodge turned B&B, relax by the fire and choose from more than 55 malt whiskies. It’s the perfect base for walkers, and of course, you can't visit Scotland without trying their own brand of porridge served with heather honey, cream and a dash of whiskey.

There's even award-winning hotels and Michelin star restaurants to visit, where the whiskey doesn't just come in a glass - there's even cinnamon whiskey ice cream to sample - ideal for a romantic weekend. One stay even takes you on a personalised tour of local distilleries. Whether you're looking for a quiet retreat or somewhere to celebrate a special occasion, raise a glass at these hotels and inns.
