From Edinburgh: Experience the Highlands with Whisky Tasting

1. From Edinburgh: Experience the Highlands with Whisky Tasting

Discover the vast landscapes and serene lochs of the Scottish Highlands on a day trip from Edinburgh. Explore quaint towns, follow a woodland trail, and savor the taste of authentic Scottish whisky. Depart Edinburgh on a scenic minibus ride over the Queensferry Crossing to the Kingdom of Fife. Watch the scenery change as you head north, from the rolling lowlands to forested hills and mountains as you approach the Highland Fault line. On the banks of the River Tay, make a stop at the charming cathedral town of Dunkeld. Hop off to explore its historic cathedral or wander through the quaint streets of this picturesque village. Continue to the hermitage and breathe in the fresh forest air on a woodland walk to the Black Linn Falls. Next, follow the wide valley of the River Tay towards the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry. Spend about one hour here to explore the many shops or grab a bite to eat. After lunch, drive through the mountains of Highland Perthshire, and take a short stop at the Queen's View overlooking Loch Tummel. On a clear day, witness the dramatic views of the peak of Schiehallion and the mountains of Glencoe. Next, head to the town of Aberfeldy and step inside Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery. Discover the secret of how Scotland's national drink is made and savor a well-deserved dram. Finally, board the minibus for a scenic return to Edinburgh.

From arrival at the scheduled meeting place until the end of the tour, the guide (Jim) and companion (Mina) were extremely friendly, attentive and careful. The van was in excellent condition and throughout the day, the guides maintained a very constructive dialogue in transferring knowledge and information about the route. They recommended great places for meals and visits in general. I always wanted to find professionals with Jim and Mina's profile! Congratulations to the company in hiring and retaining them.
