Stravaigin is fast gaining a reputation for it’s high quality Whisky Tours. Let us educate you in the ways of our Uisge Beatha “the water of life’ by joining us on one of our fascinating tailor made Whisky tours to some of the most strikingly beautiful parts of Scotland.
Scotland’s Whisky is World class, so it’s important we give you a world class tour to match it. Do you prefer Speyside or Islay? Highland or Lowland? What’s your favourite single malt? Sadly you don’t get a prize for answering these questions, but you will win a great Whisky education on any of these Stravaigin tours while you try some of the finest Scottish Whiskies available in the Whisky capital of the world.
TOUR 1: : Three day Highlands and Speyside Whisky tour:
Let Stravaigin create a customised tour of the distilleries that produce your very favourite single malts and blends while you sit back and enjoy the resplendent picture perfect Highlands and Speyside terrain.
DAY ONE starts in picturesque Pitlochry, home to one of the smallest and most beautiful distilleries, The Edradour Distillery is our first stop. Post tasting, we will take a stroll around Pitlochry, stopping for a filling lunch before we wind our way through some of the highest roads in the Highlands passing dazzling scenery on our way to Braemar and it’s renowned Royal Lochnagar Distillery for a tasting tour. With an overnight stay in hand picked accommodation.
DAY TWO takes us through Speyside itself where you are spoiled for choice with some of the most famous Single Malts in the World. So whether it’s Macallan or Glenfiddich, Glenlivet or The Balvennie, the choice is yours. Aberlour distillery are regarded as one of the very best tutored tour and tastings here in Scotland. With even more Whisky expertise, we head to Dufftown which has SEVEN (yes seven!) distilleries to offer the Whisky connoisseur.
DAY THREE we make our way to the idyllic little town of Tain with a stop off for lunch after a tasting tour at the one and only Glenmorangie Distillery. Stravaigin realises the importance of downtime for our clients, so it’s time for Inverness for some sightseeing or shopping before we head back home. Nearing the end of our time together it’s time to make our way back to Edinburgh but not before we stop off at Scotland’s highest distillery, The Dalwhinnie Distillery for a quick Whisky & Chocolate tasting. As warm as the glow left by the best Whiskies Scotland has to offer, this tour will provide happy memories for years to come.
TOUR 2: Islay Whisky Tour:
For you fans of the Whiskies of Islay and Jura, the beauteous drive to scenic Tarbet to catch the ferry to Islay takes in Loch Lomond and The Rest And Be Thankful Mountain Pass. The crossing takes two hours and while you’re taking in the arresting scenery, please keep your eye open for some of the marine life and seabirds found in the sea or around the shores of Islay. Otters, Bottlenose Dolphins, Killer Whales, Puffins, Gannets and Cormorants can be seen along with, in the Summer months, Basking Sharks. Keep that camera handy now!
As soon as we arrive on Islay, we waste no time and head straight to your accommodation and its extensive selection of Islay Single Malts in its cosy wee whisky bar.
DAY TWO takes in a magnificent Scottish breakfast before we set off for the lovely Bruichladdich Distillery followed by a visit to one of Islay’s many historical sites & a wee stop at Kilchoman Farm Distillery. From here it’s lunch before heading to the North of the Island to visit Bunnahabhain & Caol Ila Distilleries. After a visit to Islay Square for some local arts & crafts, woollens or even a tasting at the Islay Ales Micro Brewery then back to your quaint and traditional Scottish Hotel for a hearty pleasant dinner and a deep and dream filled sleep!
