Highland Lochs & Whisky Distillery Day Tour Highlights:

• Dunkeld | • Hermitage Woodland and Waterfalls | • Pitlochry | • Queen's View | • Distillery Tour and Tasting | • Loch Tay | • Killin

This day tour is especially recommended for those fascinated by the waters of Scotland's famous lochs, as well as connoisseurs of its internationally renowned 'water of life', better known as whisky. The tour sets off from Rabbie's Café in Edinburgh and travels into the heart of the Highlands via the Forth River.

En route to the tour's peak at the Dewars Whisky distillery you'll see the medieval capital of Perth and the semi-mystical woodland and waterfalls of Hermitage Forest. At Dewars in Aberfeldy you'll be shown the brewing process and will take part in a whisky tasting session. The coach trip will then make a stop by the quiet majesty of Loch Tay before heading back to Edinburgh via Stirling Castle and Linlithgow.

Tour Exclusions:

  • Lunch And Refreshments
  • Visitor Attraction Admission Fees
  • *Admission and tasting fees at the distillery.

Tour Route Details:

After setting off from Waterloo Place in one of Rabbies' luxury Mercedes mini-coaches you'll travel into the Highlands via the Forth Road Bridge, which spans the waters of the Forth River, a vital gateway of the Scottish economy. Past Fife and Perth the Black Linn Falls where the River Braan cascades into a gorge are a signature spectacle in the Hermitage woodlands.

The theme continues at Killiecrankie, the site of the well-known 'soldiers leap', where in 1689 during the Jacobite rebellion, Donald MacBean, a soldier of the government army made a daring bound across the River Garry to escape a bloody ambush by Highland troops and preserve his life.

At Aberfeldy you'll actually get to sample a 'wee dram' of that water of life in the form of Scotch Whisky at Dewar's distillery** (entry fee not included). The experience includes a tour of the processes which transform the pristine water into Scotland's most famous export.

**On Sundays from November to March and also between 20th Dec and 2nd Jan this tour will visit Glenturret Distillery instead.

The last stops on the day tour include Loch Tay and the town of Killin, beside which runs the River Dochart with its lovely white, rolling falls. The coach returns to Edinburgh via Stirling Castle and Linlithgow for around 19:00.
