"Was a perfect day trip to get a taste of what Scotland has to offer, the best whisky distillery tour I've been on."

Lou H, 2017

Itinerary


Leaving Edinburgh at 8.45am, we make our way to the ancient Scottish capital of Stirling, where the skyline is dominated by its castle and the iconic Wallace Monument. We stop to hear tales of Scotland’s most famous patriot and his part in the medieval Wars of Independence.

We then take the back roads and drive through Scotland's scenic beauty and further into the Highlands. Glens, forests and rivers aplenty, we'll take you through the heart of this picturesque region before stopping for lunch at one of Scotland’s most famous whisky distilleries.

After the chance to revive ourselves with a wee dram of the ‘water of life’, we head to the Hermitage in the heart of Perthshire and take a short woodland walk to see the spectacular Black Linn Falls on the River Braan. Our return journey visits the quaint village of Dunkeld, in Macbeth country, where a stunning cathedral sits comfortably by the banks of the River Tay. Before returning back to Edinburgh for approximately 5.30pm, we pass the iconic Forth Bridge, the new World Heritage Site.
