Know More about this tour

Leave central Edinburgh and travel north through the countryside to the country’s ancient capital of Stirling, a town stepped in history. Gaze out of your window at the majestic sight of Stirling Castle, perched high on a craggy hill overlooking the town, and then stop for photos at the Wallace Monument while learning about William Wallace and his part in the medieval Wars of Independence.
After a break to stretch your legs, return to your coach and continue north through the Highlands, enjoying sights of the beautiful cattle (or ‘wee hairy coos’ as the Scots may say) that roam the wild and windswept countryside. Travel past Loch Earn, admiring its scenic beauty, and ogle the rich colors of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park as you pass through the open parkland.
In the early afternoon, stop for a light lunch at one of Scotland’s most famous whisky distilleries – The Famous Grouse. If you are keen to learn more about whisky and its production, enjoy a tour of the distillery to see how the malts are dried and matured (own expense). After exploring the site, meet back up with any members of the group who opted not to do the tour and sample a small dram of whisky to revive your spirits.
Continue into the heart of Perthshire and stop for a walk at the Hermitage, a popular beauty spot where groves of trees frame the waterfalls and gushing waters of the River Braan. Amble through the woodland to the Hermitage’s spectacular Black Linn Falls, and after resting and taking photos, start your journey back toward Edinburgh.
Enjoy one last stop at the quaint village of Dunkeld, mentioned by Shakespeare in Macbeth, and visit the stunning Dunkeld Cathedral on the banks of the River Tay. Pass the impressive Forth Bridge just outside Edinburgh, and then finish your tour at the start point.

  • The tour of the Famous Grouse distillery was great. The sampling room was my favorite! The Black Linn Falls, Dunkeld, Hermitage, Sterling Castle and the William Wallace monument. ALL great visits.

  • Very good trip. The hike and waterfall is extremely beautiful and great to get some nature in. the whisky tour is well done and interesting and the distillery is a beautiful place as well with great lunch options. I would totally do it again.

  • Guide, Yvonne, great. Very enthusiastic. Didn't really see the castle/not enough time in Sterling.

  • This was a great trip. The guide was very knowledgable and entertaining. The tour of the distillery is very educational. The best presentation of how they make whiskey that I had in Scotland. At each stop we were given a good mix of information and time on our own to walk around and look at things. Good trip for kids too.

  • Wonderful tour . Our guide Sergio was entertaining ...never a dull moment ..very informative . Stopped at some very beautiful stops . We were glad that we took this tour .

  • Distillery tour is ok. The main problem I felt is less time at attractions. As soon as we reached at the distillery, the tour started. After the tour we literally rushed to the restaurant to grab something to eat and use restrooms. By the time we were done, it was time to leave. The bus was parked a little far away. So couldn't even take a few photographs from outside. And photography is not allowed inside. But the inside tour was really good. Another time problem was at Wallace Monument. The tour guide had given us 30 mins. It takes about 10 mins to walk to the monument from where the bus was parked. There is a mini bus service, but looking at the frequency, it takes about the same time. When we reached the monument, we found out that there is 10 ticket to go inside which our tour guide never mentioned. There was no point in buying a ticket because there was absolutely no time. So just clicked 3-4 photographs from outside and rushed back because we all needed to use restroom and this was our first halt before continuing our journey. Though there is a lot of history around it, visiting Wallace monument was a flop show.
    Before we started the tour, we paid for distillery tour at the center. Distillery tour is not included in the tour price and we were already aware of it. The lady gave us the receipt but did not give us the tickets and we did not know that we are supposed to have it. When we were in the bus we noticed that everybody has something which looked like a visiting card and then we inquired and we found out that those were actually the tickets. And it was just before we started so we were able to collect it but it would have been good if the tour guide had asked us when he was giving us instructions.

  • Scot was a lovely tour guide! Friendly, informative, and when he started his stories he finished them, unlike a tour guide we had the day before from another company. Take the whiskey tour, you won't be disappointed! It was such an enjoyable distillery too, and the food was great. The waterfall is breathtaking, and you get to walk around the wilderness a bit if you like as well, and that was fun too. Get out of the city for a day and treat yourself to some whiskey, food, waterfalls and some Herry Coos!

  • The tour guide was awesome, but as it turns out, filling a big bus with people just wasn't my style. It felt constricting.

  • Excellent Trip, worth it!

  • What made this excursion a 5 star rating was the driver/guide. Duffy was outstanding!!
