Take a trip into whisky paradise on our 1 day Ultimate Whisky Experience tour from Edinburgh. Visit two distilleries; Dewar's and Glenturret; view stunning scenery across Loch Lubnaig and enjoy a relaxing stop in the village of Aberfeldy on this Scottish Whisky trail.
A comprehensive whisky tour
Departing Edinburgh, our Ultimate Whisky tour of Scotland begins with a journey north to Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery for our first whisky themed stop of the day. Dewar's world-renowned crafted Highland Single Malt Aberfeldy whisky has been produced at Aberfeldy Distillery since 1898. We spend 2 hours here for their Whisky and Chocolate tasting tour at £21.25 per person; comprising of a full guided tour of the distillery and interactive heritage exhibition with a tasting of Aberfeldy's 12 year old single malt whisky.
After a Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery tour, we continue to the village of Aberfeldy for lunch. Spend time here exploring its streets, enjoy the scenery with plenty of time to grab a bite to eat before our whisky tour continues to Loch Lubnaig, and then to Glenturret Distillery.
Located on the Turret River, just outside of Crieff, Glenturret Distillery* is Scotland's oldest working distillery and still hand crafts its whisky using the last remaining hand operated mash tun in Scotland. Here, we enjoy a tour and tasting at £15.
We then begin our return journey to Edinburgh, passing by the majestic Forth Bridges where there may be time for a photo stop.

“My daughter (18) and I recently when on The Ultimate Whisky Experience tour with Paul B as our guide. And my goodness what an experience it was. I cannot recommend the tour more highly even for non-whisky lovers (my daughter doesn't have a pallet for whisky but found the tour fascinating). Paul's dry humour and wit was brilliant. We had enough body breaks in the day to be comfortable. And Paul's knowledge of local history and the stories behind the distilleries we visited was captivating. Never a dull moment. Comfortable coach (Mercedes Sprinter) with USB charging points. 11/10 guys, well done!”
