Warriors, Whisky & Waterfalls

Whisky divides people. Some love its fiery warmth; whereas others can’t stand its full-on flavour. But no one disagrees it’s interesting. There’s the history and strange process used to make it, and there’s the people it inspired and its global domination. On this trip we learn about whisky at The Famous Grouse Experience. You also see the wondrous Wallace monument and take a walk through beautiful Scottish woodland. So even if you decide you’ll never-ever drink whisky ever-ever again; at least you’ll have tried it and seen a bit of Scotland along the way…

Whisky, Waterfalls & Wild Adventure

Tour starts 8:45am. Say good bye to Edinburgh and say hello to the ancient Scottish capital of Stirling, home to the iconic Wallace Monument and Castle. Your Guide will regale you in the bloody tales of Scotland's most famous patriot and inspiration to the Braveheart movie, William Wallace and the important part he played in the Wars of Independence.

We venture further into the rugged Highlands that Scotland is famous for before stopping for lunch at the Famous Grouse Experience, whisky distillery. You know the whisky with the dancing Grouse!

Take the tour to find out how whisky is made and impress your mates with all you’ve learnt and enjoy a well-earned dram.

Nicely warmed from the whisky we head to the Hermitage in the heart of Perthshire and explorer the woodland and rushing Black Linn Falls on the River Braan. Our return journey visits the quaint village of Dunkeld, in Macbeth country, whose stunning cathedral sits by the banks of the River Tay. We return to Edinburgh, passing the iconic Forth Bridge on the way. Returns around 5.30pm.
