Meet up at Glasgow Airport, Scotland at 15:00 (3 pm).
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
