[Still House, Glenmorangie Distillery]

Tain is a historic town just off the A9 on the south side of the Dornoch Firth. It's the oldest Royal Burgh in Scotland, given a Royal Charter in 1066, with a number of grand old buildings evidence for its former status. These days the ring road keeps traffic away, and most passers-by are more interested in Glenmorangie Distillery (pronounced m-orangey) just out of town, surrounded by trees turned black with ethanol-loving fungus, and the number one single malt whisky within Scotland. Even if you don't have time to go on the excellent tour, the exhibition area is free and deserves a quick visit.
