Edinburgh has a new landmark and a place to meet for a drink and a dram or two.

Diageo has opened its eight-story, immersive Johnnie Walker Princes Street complex as part of a £185m investment to re-build Scotch whisky. Diageo has opened another new whisky visitor centre on the Isle of Skye. The Talisker Distillery, situated on the shores of Loch Harport in the village of Carbost on the Minginish peninsula, was founded in 1830 but Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill.

The Scotch whisky industry attracts over 2m visitors a year, allowing ample opportunities to stay in some of the finest luxury hotels in the UK and Europe.
