INTRODUCTION TO WHISKY & THE HIGHLANDS: DISTILLERY AND PERTSHIRE

Description: 

To the Distillery

PITLOCHRY, HIGHLANDS

Embark on a journey from Edinburgh, crossing the Queensferry Crossing into the enchanting kingdom of Fife.

As you head north, the landscape undergoes a captivating transformation, changing from the gentle farmlands of the Lowlands to wooded hills and majestic mountains, marking the approach to the Highland fault line.

Along the banks of the River Tay lies the picturesque town of Dunkeld. Take a break here to explore the architecturally intriguing cathedral or stroll the charming streets of this idyllic village.

A short drive takes you to the hermitage, where a beautiful walk through the woods leads to Black Linn Falls, fairyland.

Continuing the journey, follow the broad valley of the River Tay towards the Victorian seaside resort of Pitlochry. 

After lunch, embark on a scenic drive through the Perthshire Highlands. On a clear day, the view extends to the iconic Schiehallion peak and the distant Glencoe Mountains.

The next stop on the itinerary is a distillery visit and whisky tasting. After a delicious tasting of the "water of life", the tour takes you gently back to the Lowlands, concluding the day's exploration and returning to Edinburgh.
