Return Time (approx)



Experience stunning Scottish Highland scenery. Taste some whisky. A wonderful Whisky Distillery Day Tour departing from Edinburgh.

You will depart Edinburgh in the morning and make your way to the majestic Kelpies, the world’s largest equine sculptures, dedicated to horse-powered heritage across Scotland.

The drive will then wind you through Scotland’s scenic landscapes, venturing even further into the Highlands before stopping at one of Scotland’s famous whisky distilleries. There, you will taste a wee dram of the ‘water of life’ – whisky! Scotland’s national drink and biggest export. Scotland’s crystal-clear streams and plump golden barley play a large part in the making of this unique tipple, and the art of whisky distilling has been perfected here for generations.

Following this taster, you will journey to the Hermitage in the heart of Perthshire and take a short woodland walk.

The return journey visits the charming village of Dunkeld, in Macbeth country, where a stunning cathedral sits majestically by the banks of the River Tay.

On the final return to Edinburgh, you will pass the iconic Forth Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You will arrive back into the city early evening, having tried the finest whisky on Scottish soil and seen a little pice of this beautiful country along the way.


Please note from 5 February 2024, our Edinburgh tours will no longer be departing from Edinburgh Bus Station.

Whisky Distillery

The tour continues into the Scottish Highlands, where you will visit a local Highland Whisky Distillery. A visit to Scotland would not be complete without tasting 'the water of life', enjoy a wee dram! And why not book a tour and discover how Scotland's national drink is made? (optional)

The Hermitage

The next stop is The Hermitage, located in the heart of Perthshire. Enjoy a woodland walk, inhale the fresh forest air and be amazed at the sight of some of Scotland's highest trees. Dating back to the mid 1700s, this woodland is unique and suprising. Be ready for muddy boots, great photo moments and a spray of water from the stunning waterfall at the river Braan.
