The Lowland region lies South of an imaginary line that runs from Greenock on the West coast of Scotland to Dundee in the East. There are only a few single malts produced in the Lowlands as most end in blends.

Malts from this region are light in colour and have quite a dry finish. The dryness comes from the malt itself, not from peat as Lowland malts tend to be produced with unpeated malt. You may also find a certain sweet fruitiness to the flavour. Lowland malts are regarded as an excellent aperitif.

Some of the single malts available from the Lowlands are Glenkinchie, Glengoyne and Auchentoshan.
