Full description
Your tour starts with a few options. Your first options is to enjoy a tasting of Benromach Whiskey, founded in 1898. If it is too early for you to enjoy whiskey, you can choose to visit the 16th century Brodie Castle and its castle gardens or you can just enjoy some free time in the small town of Forres. 

After a morning of exploring the beautiful scenery or Benromach Whiskey, you will travel to Glenfiddich Distillery for your lunch stop. While at the distillery it is a perfect opportunity to try products of the distillery. From there it is just a short drive to the Speyside Cooperage where you can see the coopers at work building the casks.

Your final stop of the tour offers you more options. You can choose to visit Ballindalloch Castle, home to the Macpherson-Grants, and one of the most romantic castles in Scotland. Instead, you may rather visit Glenlivet Distillery, for another drink before heading back to Inverness.

Our guide, Victoria, was great! She had interesting facts she shared and she was funny! The tour itself was super fun! We did the option that had us go to ALL whisky distilleries, but there were still additional stops Victoria made. Highlights were Benromach Distillery, the Balvenie Castle at the Glenfiddich stop (after lunch, you choose to walk up to the castle or wander around the distillery property), and a few very old, very cool bridges that Victoria took us to. It is a long day so be prepared for that, but you get to see SO much of the Speyside area.
