About us

Located at the gateway to Scotland's Malt Whisky Trail, The Whisky Castle has been selling the finest malt whiskies of Scotland in the quaint village of Tomintoul for over 100 years. 

Tomintoul is the highest village in the Highlands of Scotland and The Whisky Castle is the highest whisky shop in the UK. Your hosts Sam and Scott, along with their team, would be delighted to welcome you to sample some of the finest Scottish malts and gins Scotland has to offer. 

We have over 600 malt whiskies with many being single cask, independently bottled and from small batches. We provide a unique tasting experience from a fantastic selection of spirits allowing us to match a malt to your palette and budget. 

Our single malts are personally selected by us, so you are assured of some of the most unique drams from across Scotland. 

We also stock rare and collectables from distilleries that are closed (mothballed) or demolished (silent) and lost forever! We also offer a range of lager, beers, wine, champagne, vodka, gin, port, brandy, sherry and Scottish liqueurs. 


We have a lovely gift shop offering a vast range of Scottish gifts, many of which are sourced locally, including jewellery, confectionery, preserves, clothing, home furnishings and art works. 

You will always be assured of a traditional, warm Scottish welcome at The Highland Market.


Located in the Highland Market, our friendly cafe team are always on hand to serve you with a smile.

Serving speciality teas and coffees, breakfast rolls, light lunches, cakes and luxury Scottish ice cream, we would love to welcome you to our family friendly cafe to sit-in or take-away.
