Scotland de Luxe – for Whisky Lovers
Experience Scotland, its wealth of wildlife and landscapes, its innumerable lochs and imposing mountains. Deep green glens, jagged coastlines rich in sea lochs, and the northern Scottish world of mountain range and waterfall promise you unforgettable memories of a famously beautiful countryside. This unique and spellbinding scenery, shrouded in mists from which emerge ruined strongholds, castles and stately homes, has a mysterious and fascinating atmosphere.
You discover Scotland by travelling in style on an exclusive 9 day tour packed with visits and experiences. What really makes Scotland truly unique is that this is the countryside that produces whisky. More than two thousand different blended whiskies and around 120 single malts. We sample many malts right at their source in the Highland distilleries.
After incomparable Edinburgh you explore the Lowlands and then enter the most beautiful areas of the Highlands. The rugged Hebridean island of Skye with its fairytale glens, together with the one and only Malt Whisky Trail in idyllic Speyside, are but two of the highlights of your journey of discovery. You follow this fascinating theme of whisky in its finest manifestations. In the course of this exceptional tour we look behind many normally closed doors. By way of Inverness and Loch Ness we return once more to Edinburgh.
You stay in very good small hotels in stylish surroundings with personal attention. You eat generous breakfasts and invariably excellent three course dinners. Your friendly guide is an expert on Scotch whisky, as well as on the culture, the history and the countryside of Scotland.
Travelling as a V.I.P., you discover the secrets of the classic flavours in distilleries specially chosen for you. High points of the Whisky Tour, are, among others, the interesting Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre; tastings of soft Glenkinchie, light Glengoyne, smoky Talisker, impressive Tomatin and famous Glenfiddich; as well as visits to a traditional cooperage and Scotland`s smallest distillery, Edradour. To end your tour of discovery with a special treat, the most highly regarded whisky club in the world, the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, opens its doors just for you. Such good access is only exceptionally granted to non-members. By the end of your tour you are a true whisky connoisseur – as the certificates we issue confirm.
A wealth of cultural opportunities and a flexible and varied sightseeing programme with many highlights round off an unforgettable visit to Scotland. These include castles, fortresses, a ducal seat, mysterious stone circles, and a woollen mill, to say nothing of Scotland`s cultural heart, Edinburgh; small friendly Highland towns like Inverness; romantic fishing villages, and many other interesting sights. We bring you into intimate contact with Scotland and the Scots. On the last evening of the tour you play a traditional game of skittles in Edinburgh¹s oldest pub – prepare yourself for a surprise.
