Highland Park
Learn about the whiskies, their history, and year-round tours at a distillery that has been in operation (both illegally and legally) since 1798. Highland Park is owned by the Edrington Group, which is 100% controlled by a charitable trust that supports medical clinics, centers for the elderly and the homeless, and other public services. (The company's motto could be "Sip and save a sailor," because the Royal National Lifeboat Institution is a major beneficiary.)

Orkney's official tourism site has information on island hopping, places to stay, eating and drinking, reaching the 70-island archipelago, and more.

"The Heritage of the Orkney Islands" is brought to life on Sigurd Towrie's nonprofit site, which is "dedicated to the preserving, exploring and documenting the ancient history, folklore and traditions of Orkney."

Need a car in Europe?

If you live outside the EU, a tax-free Renault or Peugeot tourist car lease can be cheaper than renting for visits of 21+ days. Minimum driver age is 18, there' s no upper age limit, and rates include insurance.
