Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre

At the top of the Royal Mile, the Scotch Whisky Centre is literally a barrel of fun - you board an electrically driven whisky barrel-car to take you through a 300 years of making whisky in Scotland - seeing, hearing and smelling!

And at the end of the tour, all the adults get a free "dram" of whisky (Walt Disney can't match that!) and a helium balloon and soft drinks for children. There is also a resident "ghost" of a Master Blender who emerges like a genie from a bottle to stand behind the bar and talk about his life as a Scotch Whisky Blender.

The Heritage Centre has been created in a former school - Castlehill School - a red sandstone building which opened in 1896.
