Leaving Edinburgh we travel west where our first stop is the Wallace Monument* in Stirling; a towering stone testimonial to the Scottish legend William Wallace.

Learn about the traditional whisky-making process, see how you measure up to the world’s largest bottle of whisky and sample some of ‘The Water of Life’ itself at the fantastic Taste Experience bar. Timberbush Tours customers can also enjoy an exclusive tasting of the Black Grouse Alpha Edition; a rich, smoky blend available only at Glenturret Distillery. Enjoy a range of tasty lunch options in the Glenturret Café or take a stroll in the distillery grounds.

After lunch we travel through the picturesque scenery of the “Sma’Glen” until we reach the beautiful Hermitage for a short woodland walk (time permitting). Afterwards, we continue on to the town of Dunkeld, where we break for refreshments and a visit to ancient Dunkeld Cathedral. We then leave Perthshire and journey to the charming town of South Queensferry, where we make a brief stop to admire magnificent views of the Forth Bridges before returning to Edinburgh.
