Scotland has been blessed with many icons: kilts, tartan, haggis, golf and bagpipes. Whisky is surely the most appreciated throughout the world. So when in Scotland what better place is there to experience whisky than The Glenturret Distillery, the oldest in Scotland. We will even pick you up from your Edinburgh hotel or guesthouse for this excellent tour!
Highlights: Dunkeld - Atholl Fountain - The Hermitage Walk - Glenturret Distillery - The Forth Bridges
From Edinburgh we will head north over the Forth Road Bridge giving us views of perhaps the eighth wonder of the world, the Forth Rail Bridge. We continue through the dramatic countryside to the banks of the River Tay and the city of Perth and onto Dunkeld, a small conservation town sitting on the banks of the River Tay and in the shadows of the ruined 13th century Cathedral. On the site of the 9th century Monestary part of the original Cathedral is still in use as the local church. Take time to walk round and see the Atholl Fountain in the "Olde Worlde" square containing craft shops and cafe/hotels or walk along the river.
We then drive to the Hermitage which is perhaps the most beautiful woodland walk in Perthshire if not Scotland. This leads us to Ossians Hall, an 18th century mirrored summerhouse overlooking a magnificent waterfall and to some of the tallest trees that you will find in this great country of ours.
Continuing through beautiful highland countryside, we reach the oldest distillery in Scotland, the Glenturret, home of the Famous Grouse, the best selling whisky in Scotland. Three drams of the Famous Grouse are sipped every single second!!
We have time for lunch in the Famous Restaurant before we join the Flight of the Grouse, an interactive tour of Scotland before our traditional distillery tour and a tasting straight from the cask.
On our way back to Edinburgh, we journey through Gleneagles, home of the world famous golf course and venue for the 2014 Ryder Cup, and then view from our coach Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument.
Even if Whisky is not to your taste you will enjoy The Experience!
