Tour Itinerary

Forth Bridges:

Our first stop is at the World-Famous UNESCO-listed Forth Bridge, we stop in South Queens Ferry and allow you time to experience the awesome sight of the Forth Bridge. Once Photos are complete we then set off for the crossing of the Forth over the road Bridge.

The Glenturret Distillery:

Situated just outside the small market town of Crieff, in beautiful rural Perthshire, the Glenturret Distillery is a fantastic hidden gem. Nestled among the trees and with the Turret river running alongside it, you get a sense of what it may have been like for illicit distillers making whisky out of sight from the excise man in years gone by. And this is not the only thing about Glenturret that gives you an insight into whisky making history. Whisky production has been taking place on the banks of the Turret since at least 1775, making it the oldest working Distillery in Scotland. This heritage shines from every aspect of the Distillery’s walls, and when you join a tour, you’ll see this in the methods used, from the Douglas Fir washbacks, to cutting the spirit by hand and by eye; not a computer in sight!  

Loch Lubnaig:

Once your first distillery visit is completed you will make your way into the Trossachs, driving by Loch Earn and Loch Lubnaig. While enroute you are able to stop and take advantage of the stunning views, with plenty of photo opportunities and a walk along the banks of one of our famous Lochs.

Callander:

Next stop is the Highland town of Callander which serves as the eastern gateway to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and is regarded as the “Gateway to the Highlands”. Spend time walking around the town visiting the small shops and sampling local produce, There are plenty of places to have lunch from Tea Rooms to Local Inns there is something for all.

Deanston Distillery:

Deanston Distillery is on the banks of the River Teith and started life back in 1785 as a cotton mill until 1966 where it transformed into today’s distillery, the only distillery in Scotland to be self-sufficient in electricity with its power coming from the River Teith. Tours are run hourly, if you wanted to experience the Heritage Tour then advance booking is required.

National Wallace Monument (Pass By):

On your journey back towards Edinburgh you will pass the National Wallace Monumant, one of Stirling’s most distinctive landmarks, overlooking the scene of Scotland’s victory at the Battle of Stirling Bridge.

Stirling Castle (Pass By):

As your journey back to the capital continus you will pass Stirling with its imposing castle towering over the town.

The Kelpies (Pass By):
