  • Discovering Malt Whisky: Day-Tour from Edinburgh

    3. Discovering Malt Whisky: Day-Tour from Edinburgh

    Departing Edinburgh at 9:30 AM, your tour takes you west past Stirling to Glengoyne distillery. Here you will be introduced to the simple but magical process of turning barley, water, and yeast into whisky. From here, you take a scenic drive to the shores of Loch Lomond for a tasty pub lunch and the chance to sample some local beer. After lunch it is recommended to take a short walk to the viewpoint overlooking the loch before heading towards the second distillery of the day. Deanston Distillery is a converted cotton mill on the banks of the River Teith has many interesting features and produces some unique whisky flavours. After a relaxed afternoon visit here you return to Edinburgh with the stories and flavors of single malt whisky fresh in your mind. You will return to Edinburgh at approximately 6:15 PM.

    really nice day tour, two whiskey distilleries and a lovely lunch stop. Check the prices for tastings to avoid surprises, it will add to your bill. 1x 16£ and1x 8.50£ pp. Buying whisky at the distillery will give a 5£ discount. The lunch stop is short, so better order quickly. Tour gives a nice first impression of the highlands. We arrived 1 h earlier back in Edinburgh then originally planned, so we could have had plenty of time for a longer stroll at Loch Lomond to explore. Or maybe another place to visit.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the tour on the 03.03.20 with my daughter. The tour guide/driver, Iain, was very entertaining, knowledgeable and accommodating.
