From our ancient capital of Edinburgh, learn about Scotland's most famous patriot and see the stunning Highland landscapes, and sample a drop of our favourite national drink.
Leaving Edinburgh, we make our way to the ancient Scottish capital of Stirling, its skyline dominated by its castle and the iconic Wallace Monument. We stop to hear tales of Scotland's most famous patriot and his part in the medieval Wars of Independence.
We then take to the back roads and drive through Scotland's scenic beauty and further into the Highlands. Glens, forests and rivers aplenty, we'll take you through the heart of this picturesque region before stopping for lunch at one of Scotland's most famous whisky distilleries.
After the chance to revive ourselves with a wee dram of the 'water of life', we head to the Hermitage in the heart of Perthshire and take a short woodland walk to see the spectacular Black Linn Falls on the River Braan. Our return journey visits the quaint village of Dunkeld, in Macbeth country, where a stunning cathedral sits comfortably by the banks of the River Tay. We return to Edinburgh, passing the iconic Forth Bridge on the way.
The Famous Grouse Experience is an award-winning whisky distillery and visitor centre. The optional guided tour will give you an insight into how 'uisge beatha' (the 'water of life') is made and takes you on an interactive journey to discover the history behind one of Scotland's most iconic whisky brands.
