Where to Find Us


 

We are located at Pulteney Distillery, Huddart Street, Wick, Caithness, KW1 5BA.

We are one of the northernmost distilleries in Scotland, but we’re still within easy reach.

Our nearest airport is Wick, John O’Groats Airport, which is just one mile north of Wick. It runs flights to and from Aberdeen airport, where you can access connections to the rest of the UK, including Edinburgh and London.

You can find us at part of the North Coast 500. We recommend you hire a car from Inverness and enjoy the full North Coast experience, stay in Mackays Hotel which is a short walk from us or in the many B&Bs in Wick.

The Scotrail service train runs from Inverness all the way to Wick where it terminates. We are then a 1mile walk to the distillery.
