Experience the Scottish Highland scenery. Taste some whisky. This is a great Whisky Distillery Day Tour from Edinburgh.
Whisky divides people. You either love its fiery warmth or detest its full-on flavour. Either way, there’s a reason why it’s Scotland’s national drink and our biggest export. Our crystal-clear streams and plump golden barley play a big part, but the art of whisky distilling has been perfected here for generations. It (literally) flows through our veins. Whether you fall head over heels for our finest dram or banish it to the back of the drinks cabinet, at least you can say you’ve tried it on Scottish soil and seen a little of our beautiful country along the way. This Whisky Distillery Day Trip from Edinburgh is a fantastic day out.
Depart on your adventure leaving Edinburgh at 8.45am. This tour takes you to the ancient Scottish capital of Stirling. Stirling is home to the iconic Wallace Monument and legendary Stirling castle. Then, venture further into the Scottish Highlands where you will visit a local Highland Whisky Distillery. This visit is of course not complete without a wee dram! After, your tour takes you to the Hermitage in the heart of Perthshire. This impressive woodland dates back to the mid 1700s. The return journey includes a visit to the picturesque village of Dunkeld, where you can admire its stunning cathedral located along the banks of the river Ty. The tour ends in Edinburgh at around 5.30pm.
From Edinburgh, this tour takes you straight to Stirling, home to the Wallace Monument and the legendary castle. Your guide will give you an elaborate insight on Scotland's most passionate patriot, William Wallace. Climb the Abbey Craig for a close look at the epic monument which pays tribute to our national hero William Wallace. From here, look down at the site where he won the Battle of Stirling Bridge against the English in 1297. The sight of one of Scotland's largest castles will take your breath away.
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 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.

On the return journey, you will visit the quaint village of Dunkeld.
