Scotland has been blessed with many icons such as kilts, tartan, haggis, golf and bagpipes but whisky is surely the most appreciated throughout the world. So when in Scotland what better place is there to experience whisky than The Glenturret Distillery, the oldest in Scotland.
From Edinburgh we will head north over the Forth Road Bridge giving us views of perhaps the eighth wonder of the world, the Forth Rail Bridge. We continue through the dramatic countryside to the banks of the River Tay and the city of Perth and onto Dunkeld, a small conservation town sitting on the banks of the River Tay ans in the shadows of the ruined 13th century Cathedral. On the site of the 9th century Monestary part of the original Cathedral is still in use as the local church. Take time to walk round and see the Atholl Fountain in the "Olde Worlde" square containing craft shops and cafe/hotels or walk along the river.
We then drive to the Hermitage which is perhaps the most beautiful woodland walk in Perthshire if not Scotland. This leads us to Ossians Hall, an 18th century mirrored summerhouse overlooking a magnificent waterfall and to some of the tallest trees that you will find in this great country of ours.

Even if whisky is not to your taste you will enjoy the experience.
We have time for lunch in a famous restaurant before we join the Flight of the Grouse, an interactive tour of Scotland before our traditional distillery tour and a tasting straight from the cask.
After such an unforgettable experience, we then begin to retrace our steps before driving through Gleneagles, home of the world famous hotel and golf course. Continuing into the Kingdom of Fife, we reach Dunfermline, burial place to many of the kings, before reaching our final photo stop of the day at the Forth Bridges and on home to Edinburgh.
Wonderfull tour but a far away.

Frequently Asked Questions
Wonderfull tour but a far away.
The traffic in Edinburgh is always very bad, so I was worried if the bus will arrive on time, but fortunately it wasn't.
.../> We collected all other participants and left the city.
There was 13 participants in total, 1 driver and 2 staff members.
On teh way to our main destination, the driver (Paul?) talked about the history and the area, which was very informative. Fortunately the weather was beautiful and we enjoyed nice walk on our stops on the way.
At the distillery, a young person showed us around, but his accent was quite hard to understand. But it was very interesting.

The distillery was of course great, but a little town we stopped for lunch on the was was also very beautiful. Everybody was nice... and friendly. We don't speak English very well, but we laughed at our accents and enjoyed a little chat with other people. The rain was on and off, and we could see the rainbow a few times. We even saw a really big double rainbow, first time in my live - it was very impressive!
