  • Glasgow: Glengoyne Distillery Guided Tour & Whiskey Tasting

    1. Glasgow: Glengoyne Distillery Guided Tour & Whiskey Tasting

    Follow the journey of whiskey-making through mashtun and washbacks to the swan-necks of copper stills. Discover how every ounce of flavor is captured before sending the spirit to the cask. In the cool confines of the stone warehouse, see where the magic of maturation takes place. Learn how the whiskey ages, from the difference the wood makes, to how the spirit deepens in color over the years. After the tour, enjoy a tutored tasting of 3 Glengoyne Whiskies. Each whisky is paired with a chocolate from award-winning, Iain Burnett the Highland Chocolatier.

    All staff were really friendly. The tour guide Vivienne was outstanding. Very professional set up and know how to treat people.

  • From Glasgow: Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond and Whisky Tour

    2. From Glasgow: Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond and Whisky Tour

    Discover Scotland's glorious past on this exciting tour in the hearthland of Highland heroes such as Rob Roy, Robert the Bruce and William Wallace. Marvel at the natural beauty of the forests, lochs and mountains in Loch Lomond National Park. You will depart Glasgow at 9 AM and travel towards Stirling, along a route that has been used for thousands of years by invading armies. It was the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire, and was later used by the English King Edward I as he marched towards Stirling. As you approach Stirling the magnificent castle dominates your view and you make your way up towards the high volcanic rock where it imposes itself upon the surrounding land. To the north is the towering National Wallace Monument commemorating Scotland’s great hero William Wallace, played by Mel Gibson in the Oscar-winning movie Braveheart. To the South is Bannockburn castle where,...

    Guide was excellent but he seemed confused about what to do for part of the trip. Some of the participants didn’t want to do the whiskey tour so there was some confusion.

  • 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.

You’ll finish the day at Glengoyne Distillery, situated in a wooded valley in the southern Highlands.

You will, of course, have the opportunity to tour this beautiful...

    Thoroughly enjoyed the tour on the 03.03.20 with my daughter. The tour guide/driver, Iain, was very entertaining, knowledgeable and accommodating. He probably even organised the beautiful sunny weather we experienced! The views of the Highlands were magnificent. (And Iain's playlist on the return journey was excellent!) Will definitely recommend this tour!

A very well organized trip, a beautiful route and a professional guide who gave us a lot of knowledge about Scotland. It traveled safely as the minibus was exceptionally clean and well prepared for the trip in terms of disinfection, which is very important to me now. A wonderful trip that I can recommend to others who want to experience the beauty of Scotland.
