Full description
Leaving Aberdeen in the morning you’ll arrive first in Royal Deeside, one of the favored holiday locations of the British royal family. At the Cambus O’May forest, walk in the woods and reenergize in the pristine environment that makes this area such a draw for visitors. Invigorated by the walk, head deeper into the national park as you travel past Cockbridge and Tomintoul. This legendary stretch of road regularly sees the first of the snowy winter weather and crosses the mountain pass known locally as the Lecht. You’ll have plenty of time for photo opportunities on this unforgettable route. Then, delve into the home of whisky in the Speyside region. Stop at the Speyside Cooperage where you’ll get to know the history of Scotland’s oak casks. Next, head to one of the Speyside towns for lunch before visiting Strathisla Distillery, an iconic distillery with a pagoda-shaped roof that is the oldest in the Scottish Highlands and where the story of the Chivas Brothers started.   Savor this excellent single malt and learn about its relationship with famous Chivas Regal blends. Leave Strathisla full of appreciation for whisky and arrive in Aberdeen in the early evening where it’ll be up to you whether you continue the whisky tasting into the night.
