Package Overview

This is an escorted tour. It’s perfect if you prefer not to do your own driving and want to see as many sights as you can during your vacation. 

No visit to Scotland is complete without a little Scotch to warm your insides! You'll start and end your adventure in Edinburgh, Scotland's hilly capital.

In between your time exploring the city, you'll enjoy a 3-day guided tour of Speyside's Whisky Trail, home to more than half of Scotland's malt whisky distilleries. Your 3-day adventure allows you to sit back and let someone else do the driving while you visit some of the finest whisky distilleries in Scotland, and enjoy the magnificent scenery of Cairngorm National Park, Speyside and Royal Deeside.
