Full description
Depart from Edinburgh and journey north to South Queensferry, where you will enjoy a photo stop of the Queensferry Bridges.

Continue on to Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery for the first whiskey-themed stop of the day. Spend 2 hours here for a full guided tour of the distillery, warehouse, and interactive heritage exhibition. Taste a 12-year-old single malt, a 12-year-old blended Scotch, and an 18-year-old blended Scotch, matched with chocolate sourced from a local chocolatier. The tour costs £23 for 3 whiskey samples with paired chocolates.

Continue to the village of Killin for lunch. Spend time here exploring its streets and enjoy the scenery with plenty of time to grab a bite to eat. Head on to Loch Lubnaig, and then to Deanston Distillery - a historic cotton mill which has been distilling whiskey using traditional methods since the 1960s. Stop here to enjoy a whiskey tasting at £13 and enjoy some refreshments in the cafe. Make a final stop for a short photo break at Doune Castle, famous for its appearances in Outlander, Game of Thrones, and Outlaw King, before you return to Edinburgh.
