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 £19.55 per person; comprising of a full guided tour of the distillery, warehouse and interactive heritage exhibition, and 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.

Our final stop of the day is a short photo break at Doune Castle (famous for its appearances in Outlander, Game of Thrones and Outlaw King) before we return to Edinburgh where our Ultimate Whisky tour ends.

Great day trip for whisky lovers or newbies!
“This was a great tour for whisky lovers! Our tour guide Jim took us to Dewars and Glenturret distilleries, where we learned about the whisky making process and had a few tastings as well. Jim was a great guide, filling our day with stories about Scotland and his knowledge of whisky. He also stopped along the way for us to explore the little villages and natural beauty of the surrounding areas along the way. Highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun day from Edinburgh!”
