3 Day Highland Whisky Tour
Experience the beauty of Scotland as well enjoying a dram at different distilleries across the country. Over the three days you will be able to experience the different tastes from Famous distilleries such as Dalwhinne, Glenlivet and Macallan while soaking in the stunningly remote Cairngorms.
We strive on making your tour as memorable as possible so any day can be adapted to your interests and needs. Let us know and we can put together a bespoke itinerary.

We’ll head north towards Perth and into the Highlands. The first stop will be at a stunning beauty spot called ‘The Hermitage’. It was created by the Duke of Atholl as a playground for his family and friends in 1757. We can go for a walk for about one hour to a viewpoint and enjoy the River Tay valley.
After your walk you’ll be needing a dram so we’ll head for Edradour Distillery (one of Scotland’s smallest). It’s really quaint and one of our favourites. The tour here last about one hour.
Next stop will be the remarkable retail experience in the middle of nowhere. The House of Bruar. They have a nice restaurant for lunch. There is also a lovely walk up to the magnificent Falls of Bruar. We can either do this before or after lunch. Again the walk all the way round takes about one hour.
Dalwhinnie distillery is another 30 minutes further north into the Cairngorm National Park. It is Scotland’s highest distillery and coldest in winter (check the website and let us know which tour you would like and we’ll book it).
Accommodation for tonight will be in the town of Aviemore. A busy, lively town which is a ski area in the winter.
First stop today will be Loch Garten. There have been ospreys nesting here since the 1950s and there is a hide where you can observe them. There are also a number of beautiful walks through the caledonian forests.
After a brief stop in Grantown on Spey we’ll head for Glenlivet Distillery. I would recommend the ‘Drams of Distinction’ tour (£40). It is a tasting tour as opposed to a production tour.
Spaces are limited on this tour so not guaranteed.
Lunch in Craigellachie then off to The Macallan’s amazing new distillery for a production tour.(£15).
The last but by no means least visit of the day will be to The Glenfiddich. I would recommend the ‘Spirit of Innovation’ tour here it’s a combined production and tasting tour which lasts two hours (£25).
Finally we’ll head for Tomintoul – the highest village in the Highlands – for the night
Today we’ll head for Braemar first to enjoy a lovely walk to the Linn of Quoich. One of Queen Victoria’s favourite spots. This will take a couple of hours.
The ‘Warehouse Experience’ tour at the Royal Lochnagar Distillery starts at 1300hrs (£25) and last about an hour. We will then have lunch in Braemar before heading south to return to Edinburgh about 1730.
