Tour company information

Scottish Food and Drink Trails

Unique Food and Drink tours and experiences, highlighting Scottish food and drink producers, throughout Scotland leaving from Edinburgh. We take you to meet Scottish food and drink heroes who make their products with a lot of passion. On our tours you will get to taste and saviour food and drink made by them. You will also see beautiful scenery and come up close with history too. Our tours and experiences are small and can be bespoke. We like it that way as our presence will not disturb our much-loved producers’ life or impact on the landscape we love and want to share with you.

Opening times

We are now open for bookings from the 1st of June 2021. For family groups/bubbles of 4 people.
