What to Expect
Meet your guide and top-of-the-range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach in central Edinburgh. Then, depart for your full-day tour of the Scottish Lowlands. Along the way, soak up sweeping views over the Scottish countryside and learn its whisky-making history from your guide. First, stop at the Glengoyne Distillery in Dumgoyne for a guided tour. Here, see how Scottish whisky is traditionally made, sample some whiskies, and learn more about the distillery. Continue through the beautiful Trossachs National Park to Loch Lomond—one of the region’s top natural attractions. You have time here to admire the lake and mountain scenery, and stop for lunch (own expense). Next, visit the Deanston Distillery—nestled on the banks of the Teith River and widely considered Scotland’s most environmentally friendly distillery. During your tour, see how whisky is made the Deanston way and taste two types of single-malt Scotch. The tour ends with drop-off in central Edinburgh.

Went here with a bunch of eight lads and we really, thoroughly enjoyed it. Grant, our tour guide answered all our questions and filled the day with personal and funny stories to keep us entertained. The locations themselves - Deanston and Glengoyne were well worth a visit.
