Departure / Arrival Time 
Meet up at Glasgow Airport, Scotland
Set off for Stirling Castle where we will have a chance to appreciate one of the most historically significant castles where several Scottish kings and queens were crowned, including Mary Queen of Scots. The castle grounds include buildings from the 14th and 15th centuries as well as more “modern” additions from the 18th century. Our journey will take us close to the Wallace Monument and the Stirling Bridge. These destinations both commemorate Scottish hero Sir William Wallace who fought against the English with much success until eventually paying the ultimate price when captured by the English in the early 14th century. Following Stirling, we will head in a north-easterly direction towards the ancient town of Perth. Then we will continue to the serene countryside villages that comprise the area where our special historic manor sits.
Dewar’s World of Whisky,Tay Forest Park, Blair Castle
Following breakfast, we will set off for our first distillery – Dewar’s World of Whisky. En route, we will pass the Tay Forest Park as we follow the river Tay upstream towards the town of Aberfeldy. First founded in the late 19th century, Dewar’s is renowned for its smooth blended whisky and was among the very first distilleries to develop overseas markets and export whisky legally. The distillery, now referred to as the Dewar’s-Aberfeldy distillery, is set among the highest mountains of Perthshire at a point where they meet the deepest lochs in the region. The Aberfeldy is a single malt mainly used and sold to the blending market, including Dewar’s, in addition to its signature 12-year-old malt. Following a picnic lunch, we will leave for a short trip up towards the famous Queen’s View via Tummel Bridge where we will take a walk and enjoy more breath-taking scenery. We will continue to a full tour of Blair Castle – a location steeped in history from Mary Queen of Scots to Queen Victoria; the tales of dukes and earls and the fates of clans have all been touched and affected by this extraordinary structure. The castle has been used as a site for filming many TV productions, including “Victoria” in 2017.
Village of Killin via the Edradour distillery
Following breakfast, we will make our way to the village of Killin via Edradour Distillery. This boutique distillery has the distinction of being the smallest in Scotland and comes highly recommended – punching well above its weight. We will visit the Falls of Dochart, taking a short walk around the village watching the falls as they flow towards Scotland’s longest river – the Tay. The afternoon will be devoted to your choice of sports activities such as cycling, fishing, shooting, golf, or hiking. We will meet up and return together to our special abode. Following dinner and before retiring, there will be an optional outing to hear some local live music or a games competition within the manor including the billiard room.
Dalwhinnie, Menzies castle
We will travel northwest towards the old military road to Dalwhinnie. Set at the highest altitude, this classic malt distillery is situated on the southern edge of Inverness-shire. Offering some interesting new range of products, we will tour and taste our way through the highlights of this iconic distillery. On our way south, we will travel via the Braes of Foss, skirting the famous Munro Schiehallion, before arriving at the renowned Menzies Castle. Here we will tour the ancient edifice and, weather permitting, also stroll through the famous walled garden. On the way back we will travel to Dunkeld and offer the possibility of walking the famous Hermitage Woodland walk, for those keen on a good hike (weather dependent). Following a final dinner together, a special, prize-carrying whisky-tasting competition will take place!
Perth, Edinburgh
Following our last breakfast and check-out, we will head south via the quaint town of Perth towards Edinburgh. On our way to Auld Reekie (Edinburgh), we will take in more of the East Lothian coastline and enjoy the view of the famous Forth Road Bridge. Once in Edinburgh, we will take in some of the many prominent features of the Scottish capital, which have catapulted it to the much-coveted status of “the best city to live in, in the world” (Arcadis, Global Consultancy, December 2018). There is much to be related to and plenty to see in this wonderful city. Among other places of interest, we will tour the renowned Princes Street, the Walter Scott monument, and the Scottish Parliament building, have a glimpse of Arthur’s Seat, take a peek at Holyrood House, and of course, leave time for the famous Royal Mile. The city, which is steeped in history and boasts tremendous cultural activities, also produced many famous personalities, such as author Robert Louis Stevenson, poet Sir Walter Scott, inventor Alexander Graham Bell, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and actor Sean Connery. We will discover some of the very paths along which they walked. There will be free time for souvenir purchasing as well as general browsing and photo ops with the many kilt-attired, bagpipe-playing, locals. A healthy stroll up the Royal Mile towards the plaza of Edinburgh castle is recommended. We will set off for Edinburgh airport at 14:30 (2:30 pm) for departing flights.

Wednesday Early Start Highland Trip

6:00A.M Depart from Hotel for a 3+hour drive up North to the Highlands to visit two famous distilleries. These distilleries are in the very heart of Speyside, halfway between Inverness and Aberdeen. Enjoy the drive through spectacular scenery with a 7.30am picnic style breakfast stop in the Blair Athol area


The Glenfarclas distillery is a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky distillery, in the moors of Banffshire. It is strategically located just one mile from the river Spey and receives its water from the pure springs of Ben Rinnes mountain range. It is one of the very few family-owned distilleries in Scotland. Most of the whisky matures in sherry butts and the distillery produce a range of excellent aged single malts. Glenfarclas was one of the very first distilleries in Scotland to open a dedicated visitor’s center and have a unique ship-themed tasting room adding much character to the ambience.

Speyside Cooperage visitor Centre, Craigellachie.

We are excited to include a special tour of the Speyside cooperage – arguably one of the most important links in the chain of Scotch whisky production. The market for barrels in which the amber liquid spends so much time, is an industry all of its own. However, here in the heart of Speyside Malt whisky Trail, lies the speyside cooperage, the only working cooperage in the U.K. where you can appreciate the ancient art of coopering. Since 1947, the cooperage has produced the finest casks from American oak. Each year it produces and repairs nearly 150,000 oak casks used by the surrounding distilleries as well as whisky distilleries throughout Scotland and indeed, around the world.

On our way to Dalwhinnie, we plan a brief stop at the famous Walkers shortbread factory shop. The pure butter shortbread biscuits have long been an internationally renowned product – readily recognized in the iconic tartan packaging. For many years now, it has recognized Kashrut supervision and approval of the OU organization. Those visiting the factory shop, can usually benefit from some highly discounted prices on certain popular biscuits. Well worth the “short” detour!


The highest distillery in Scotland. It has the Monadhlaith Mountains to one side, and the Forest of Atholl, and the Cairngorms on the other. Dalwhinnie is one of the original 6 Classic Malts which were selected – among other reasons – as representatives of the 6 different Scotch Whisky regions. Despite being close to Speyside, it officially represents the Highland region. Dalwhinnie relies on the clear spring water from Lochan-Doire-Uaine, and the abundant source of peat found in the nearby bogs. The 15 year old is the distillery’s standard bottle and its iconic cream-colored label is prevalent among whisky lovers around the globe. We will head southwards to Glasgow for Dinner at Le’Chaims Restaurant

Thursday 8th June

8:30AM Breakfast. Hotel Check out 9:15 AM 09:30 Departure for Loch Katrine.

We head to The Loch Katrine National Park to get some fresh Scottish air. It is a place of contrasts from rolling lowland landscapes in the south to high mountains in the north, and has many lochs and rivers, forests and woodlands. It is also a living, working landscape which has been influenced by people for generations and is visited and enjoyed by many for its recreational value. Ride a Bike and explore the great range of cycle routes, from family friendly and wide forest tracks through the area’s stunning forests. There should be an option of boarding a short cruise around the loch – recommended for enjoying the panoramic scenery.

Following a picnic lunch by the Loch, we head for the Deanston Distillery, Doune.

Deanston’s Highland and Island Tour - 15:00* TBC

The Deanston distillery is a single malt distillery located 8 miles north of Stirling. It is a relatively “young” distillery having opened in 1966. Formerly the site was a flax mill, powered by the flow of the river Teith. Today, after its conversion to a distillery, Deanston is said to be the only Scotch whisky distillery to be self-sufficient in electricity with power supplied on-site by hydroelectricity. The combination of excellent water sourcing with the booming growth in the Scotch whisky market, led to much interest in this distillery, which in turn led to some changes in ownership. Today the distillery is owned by the Distell Group Limited and produces traditional Scotch whisky employing local craftsmen who rely on unique distilling techniques.

Leave distillery by 16:00 for Glasgow Airport, arriving circa 17:20 for homeward or onward flights
