An exquisite journey through the world of Scotch whisky. On this trip you’ll see spectacular scenery, explore traditional communities, and visit some of Scotland’s iconic Lowland distilleries - the perfect blend of Scotch whisky and Scotland.
This morning we head out of the capital to visit Glenkinchie - the Edinburgh Malt. This is a must-do journey through Glenkinchie’s rich heritage and includes a tutored whisky tasting of 3 drams and a wee cocktail in the Tasting Room – a delicious start to a wonderful whisky adventure. Next, we tour to Culross; a traditional village with pan-tile roofs and fine 17th century architecture that featured in the ‘Outlander’ series. End the day with a visit to Deanston Distillery near Stirling. Overnight Stirling.
We head for Glengoyne Distillery, often described as Scotland's most beautiful distillery, that sits on the edge of the Highland/Lowland line. Enjoy an informative tour and tasting here. The onward journey passes through stunning scenery to the bustling town of Callander situated on the River Teith. We visit the shop at Tullibardine Distillery that produces wonderful artisanal whisky and spend the afternoon at beautiful Lindores Abbey Distillery, where distilling has taken place on this site since at least 1494. We recommend a 3-flight tasting here. Overnight Perth.
Explore the ancient and historic town of St. Andrews consisting of narrow alleys and cobbled streets. The University of St. Andrews, founded in 1410, dominates the centre of town and afterwards, you’ll not want to miss a tour and tasting at nearby Kingsbarns Distillery – it’s a great place for a light lunch too. Visit the exhibition space, go on a guided tour of the distillery, and then head to the tasting rooms to sample Kingsbarns single malts including the award-winning ‘Dream to Dram’. We now make our way back to Edinburgh via the village of South Queensferry.
