The Glenlivet distillery
Explore the power and majesty of Scotland’s castles on this tour from Edinburgh to the Highlands. You will visit Scotland’s most impressive castles, tower forts, and palaces. And you even get a chance to take a boat trip and visit Scotland’s highest whiskey distillery. On this tour, you’ll join the ranks of esteemed history lovers while you travel over sea, loch, and glen.
You will feel like a lord or lady as you wander through castles and manor houses. Stride ancient battlefields like a sword-wielding Highlander. And relive Scotland’s history-defining moments of conceit and treachery as you listen to your driver-guide’s epic tales.
Places you'll explore:
Falkland Palace - The palace was the countryside home for many of the Stuart royalty. They would make use of the woodland areas in the vicinity to hunt.
Royal Deeside - The Royal family’s beloved stunning hill land area of the northeast.
Brodie Castle & Culloden - A 16th-century mansion that belonged to the Brodie Clan until 1980. And Culloden moor is the resting place of those lost in the final land battle to have taken place in Great Britain.

Savour the experience of Scotland’s finer distilleries on this comprehensive tasting tour from Edinburgh.
Whisky is a golden-hued contradiction. It’s somehow smoothly harsh, subtly bold, and roughly refined. It’s undoubtedly an 'acquired taste'.
And on this tour, we give you time to understand all of the whiskey's nuanced characteristics in two of Scotland’s outstanding whiskey regions.
You begin by savoring the smoky and peaty whiskeys of the Isle of Islay. You then return to Edinburgh to experience an exclusive lunch at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. And for dessert, you head north for a chance to indulge in the light, sweet single malts of the Speyside region.
What's more is between all the delectable flavors you get a chance to see Scotland's famous national parks, lochs, and ancient sites.
The best things in life take time. Think about whiskey. The oak trees grow for over 70 years before being made into casks. The drink needs to distill for at least three years. And to enjoy it, you must sip it slowly.
And then there’s the Lake District. The beautiful sheep pastures have evolved since Roman times, travelers have etched in the paths for hundreds of years, and you can’t get anywhere in a hurry on the little lanes.
So, on this tour, you take the slow lane and enjoy these two emblems of Britain. You take the train to the Lake District, stay in Edinburgh, venture through the Highlands, and visit a few of the Speyside Whisky Trail’s finest distilleries.
A home can mean different things to different people. In the Lake District, they can be cottages lined up along little lanes, surrounded by beautiful mountains, and never too far from a swim in a lake.
Whereas in Scotland, castles were some people’s homes. These stone fortifications could contain dozens of families and pose as both a war weapon and a wedding venue. On this trip, we take you exploring through quintessential British landscapes to some of these unique buildings.
You see the town halls and squares by the Lake District’s famous waters. You see Gothic spires overlooking the cobbled lanes of Edinburgh. And you see castles clinging to dramatic cliffs by the sea.
And maybe by the end of the tour, you’ll have found that little place you’d dream of moving into one day.
