What You'll Do
  • Visit ancient Stirling and see the extraordinary monument to Braveheart
  • Tour the Glenturrett Distillery and take the optional Famous Grouse Experience
  • Walk through the forest at the Hermitage to the stunning Black Linn Falls
  • Explore Dunkeld, a picturesque village famous for its beautiful cathedral ruins
Overview
Explore the Scottish Highlands and take in some of the country’s most iconic landscapes and sights. You’ll have a chance to try a “nip” of the national drink and take the optional “Famous Grouse Experience” tour at one of oldest whisky distilleries.
What to Expect
Depart from Edinburgh in the morning, heading for the Scottish Highlands via Stirling, the country’s ancient capital. Stirling’s skyline is dominated by its castle and the iconic Wallace Monument.

After paying a visit to “Hamish, the Hairy Coo”, continue your drive into the Highlands, taking in the scenic beauty of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

Along the way, pass by the shimmering waters of Loch Earn before stopping for lunch at The Famous Grouse Experience, one of Scotland’s most famous whisky distilleries. There is an optional guided tour available that provides an insight into how “uisge beatha” (the water of life) is made and takes you on an interactive journey of the history behind one of the best-known brands of Scotch whisky.

Having revived yourself with a wee dram, head to the heart of Perthshire to visit the Hermitage and enjoy a woodland walk to the spectacular Black Linn Falls on the River Braan.

The return journey takes us to the quaint village of Dunkeld, made famous in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Dunkeld is also known for its stunning cathedral, situated on the banks of the River Tay. Finally, drive past the Forth Bridges and return to Edinburgh.

Meeting Point

We're not far from where the North Bridge intersects with the Royal Mile (the name of the succession of streets that run from the Castle downhill to Holyrood Palace). The 'Bank Hotel' is the easiest building to identify at this junction. Head down the hill, past the Radisson Blue Hotel on your right, and we're the blue building on the corner of Blackfriars Street. You can't miss us! (Open in Google Maps)
