Come and experience Scotland’s “Water of Life” - single malt Scotch whisky - with visits to two fascinating distilleries situated right on the edge of the Highlands. In between, these visits enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Loch Lomond National Park. This tour is for lovers of Scotch single malt whisky and for those who would like to know more about our national drink. Discover the secrets behind the making of Scotland’s national drink and in particular the best variety of all - single malt whisky. Your tour takes you west from Edinburgh past Stirling to visit the first distillery of the day at Glengoyne. Beautifully situated at the foot of the Campsie Hills, which provide the water supply for the whisky making, the tour here will introduce you to the simple but magical process of turning barley, water and yeast into whisky. From here you will take a scenic drive to the shores of Loch Lomond in the heart of Scotland’s first National Park for a tasty pub lunch and the chance to sample some local beers. After lunch, we recommend a short walk to the viewpoint overlooking the loch and all its islands before heading off towards the second distillery of the day at Deanston. This converted cotton mill on the banks of the River Teith has many interesting features and produces some unique flavours in its whisky. After a relaxed afternoon visit here you will return to Edinburgh with the stories and flavours of single malt whisky fresh in your mind. For a more personal experience, this tour is taken in the comfort of a 16 seat mini coach. ***Entry fees and tastings are not included at the distilleries.
