Keith

The Friendly Town of Keith is situated midway between Aberdeen and Inverness.

Stop off in Keith you’ll hear the rich Doric dialect being spoken. The town has done so much to preserve the dialect of North-east Scotland that it was named Scotland’s first ‘Scots Toun’.

With a proud textile history, Keith is home to the Keith Kilt and Textile Centre, where courses are delivered in the skilled craft of kilt making.

Strathisla Distillery, part of the world-famous Malt Whisky Trail, is the oldest working distillery in the Highlands and welcomes thousands of visitors every year.

The Keith and Dufftown Railway runs tourist trains along its scenic 11 mile whisky line during the summer months with special services at other times. The route is Britain’s most northerly heritage railway.

The picturesque Auld Brig was built in 1609 as a crossing point over the River Isla and can still be crossed on foot today.
