Full description

Enjoy a full-day tour of the Scottish Heartlands departing Edinburgh and traveling in small groups for a more intimate experience. Take a scenic drive through Perthshire, looking at the lochs and glens of the Highlands.

Cross the Forth Road Bridge, passing one of Scotland's great engineering wonders, and continue into the Kingdom of Fife. Pass Loch Leven Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned.

Pass Perth, before crossing the Highland Boundary Fault line. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, on the banks of the River Tay, visit the cathedral town of Dunkeld and the Hermitage, to take a fantastic woodland walk up to the Black Linn Falls.

Stop at the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry, and visit the great shops and restaurants, or take a stroll down towards Loch Faskally. See the unmistakable peak of Schiehallion, and beyond to the mountains of Glencoe. 

Continue alongside Loch Tummel, and head past the spectacular 16th-century Castle Menzies towards the town of Aberfeldy and Dewars Whisky Distillery.

After enjoying a dram of the "water of life," return to the lowlands and back to Edinburgh at approximately 6:30 PM.

We went on this trip with Carrie and she showed us the country's most amazing landscape and told us stories of the rich history with such great enthusiasm! We could not be any happier and you can tell that she loves her job. Carries energy was truly inspiring and she added a lot of humor and music to the trip. We can not recommend her enough. Thanks!

Grant was a friendly, lowkey guy who knew his stuff! Great day out overall, lots of sights, stayed on schedule and took us to some of the most beautiful sights (and delicious whisky) in Scotland. I highly recommend this tour and any other from Rabbie's when you plan your trip.

An amazing trip with an oustanding guide. Grant made this trip, he gave us so much information about the areas we visited such as Dunkeld Cathedral, The Hermitage, Queens View pitlochry and the finale Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery. Grant's music selection, jokes, and general wit and charm where outstanding, the experience was incredible.
