Gateway to the so-called ‘Malt Whisky Trail’, Keith hosts Scotland’s oldest working malt whisky distillery, Strathilsa, but there are many other distilleries in the nearby hills. The Auld Brig o’ Keith, dating from 1609, is one of two historic bridges that join Keith to Fife Keith. The ruined Milton Tower was once the home of the Oliphant family.

Keith was the birthplace of James Gordon Bennett whose name has become synonymous with a mild expletive. The originator of ‘chequebook journalism’, he was both founder and editor of the New York Herald in the 19th century.
