As we continue to the final distillery of our Whisky experience day tour, we travel in Scotland’s first national park.

Loch Lomond is arguably Scotlands most famous loch and the “Jewel of the National Park”

Whisky Experience Day Tour

Scotch whisky is ingrained in Scottish culture.

Ancient Scots used it to heal common ailments and keep warm throughout the winter.

Scottish whisky exports make up one quarter of the UK’s international food and drink trade and as a result, a wee dram is all part of your Scotland tour.

Whisky is a fascinating part of Scottish heritage, and on this Whisky tour from Edinburgh, you will learn about it at 3 distinct distilleries.

Whisky Tour from Edinburgh

First stop is Glenkinchie Distillery, 15 minutes from the capital and an ideal first stop.

In 1825, farmers John and George Rate built and operated the distillery under the name Milton Distillery until it was licenced and renamed in 1837.

Next is Glengoyne Distillery; a quaint distillery located at the foot of the Dumgoyne Hill near Loch Lomond. Ideally located on the highland divide and because of its proximity to the famous Loch, makes it an ideal lunch stop.

Guided Tours of Scotland

Our final distillery on our whisky experience day tour from Edinburgh is Deanston distillery. A large producer with a fascinating industrial past and very close to Doune Castle.

What’s more is you blend these delicious flavours with a visit to the Loch Lomond National Park.

So, take this tour, sample a delectable range of whiskies, and learn about Scotland’s national drink.

It’s been my dream to visit Scotland, and Niall McOwan of Scottish Guided Tours made this the trip of my lifetime. He took wonderful care of us for five days; he created so many wonderful experiences for us - I’ll never forget it - we took his Outlander Tour - as a Scot, he is a wealth of Scots history, plus - he knows Outlander the show. We missed him terribly when it was over. Ten stars!

It is rare nowadays to say that something is perfection, but my fellow trip companions and I would agree that our tour with Scottish Guided Tours led by Niall and Andrew was just that. During our ten-day visit to Scotland, we journeyed on a three-day Outlander tour with Niall as our guide and a one-day tour of St. Andrew's led by Andrew...

Eddie, our most professional, congenial guide, was excellent. Our four days with him were seamless. He filled us with the zest of the Inverness/Isle of Skye area and people. My only regret was not having him with us for our entire trip. Thank you, Eddie and Scotland Guided Tours.

Our tour of the Highlands and Islands would not have been the same without Niall. He took such great care of us, planned a truly amazing tour and handled all of the logistical details. While discussing the itinerary, we started with the tour offered, and he helped us customize our five-day trip so we could experience exactly what we hoped. Additionally, we enjoyed our overnight accommodations based on Niall's excellent recommendations...
