Located on the A96, Keith lies midway between Aberdeen and Inverness. It  is an important stop on the Speyside Malt Whisky Trail thanks to the Strathisla Distillery, the oldest continously working distillery in Scotland dating from 1786. The town, however, boasts four distilleries in total on top of numerous traditional shops, plenty of good restaurants and a wide range of accommodation ranging from hotels and guest houses to B&Bs and self-catering cottages. Keith is also home to the only world school teaching kiltmaking and creative embroidery, the Keith Kilt and Textile Centre.
