From Edinburgh: Speyside Whisky Trail 3-Day Small Group Tour

2. From Edinburgh: Speyside Whisky Trail 3-Day Small Group Tour

A warm welcome awaits you in Speyside, home to more than half of Scotland's malt whiskey distilleries. You’ll have a chance to sample the whiskey and enjoy the magnificent scenery of Cairngorm, Speyside and Royal Deeside. Day 1: Head north through the Kingdom of Fife to Lindores Abbey Distillery. This modern Scottish distillery is built on the site of the first-ever recorded distillery in the country. After lunch in Pitlochry, sample the delights of Scotland's highest distillery at Dalwhinnie, near the source of the River Spey. Once you’ve warmed with this dram of “the gentle spirit”, continue through the Cairngorms National Park before reaching Grantown on Spey - your base for 2 nights. Day 2: Enjoy a whole day exploring Scotland’s most famous whiskey region. After a scenic drive towards the coast, make your first stop of the day at Glen Moray distillery, where you can try whisky matured in a wide selection of casks. Travel back up the Spey River to Craigellachie for a visit to the Speyside Cooperage*, where you see another aspect of the whiskey-making process. After lunch in nearby Aberlour, visit Cardhu Distillery, which is the first distillery pioneered by a woman, Helen Cumming. Today, Cardhu is the most important whisky in Johnnie Walker Black Label. From here, travel back to Grantown on Spey. *Speyside Cooperage is only visited on Monday and Wednesday departures. Day 3: In the morning visit Scotland's highest distillery at Dalwhinnie, set in splendid mountain scenery at the heart of the Cairngorm National Park.  Then, enjoy the majesty of Royal Deeside. Pass by Balmoral Castle, and stop in the village of Braemar in the heart of the National Park. From here, the route south passes over Scotland’s highest mountain pass, through Perthshire, and back to Edinburgh.

What people are saying about Dufftown

Fascinating "taster" of the Cairngorms. I think this should be renamed "Caringorms National Park & Speyside Whisky Tour" for it is not a tour of the Cairngorm mountains as such but rather the whole National Park. The nature of the roads means you get only one view from high up in the mountains, and it is very good, but you do not spend much time there. Other stops are Carrbridge, Boat of Garten (plus steam train), Loch Morlich (amazing beach), Aviemore (a tourist trap but a place to eat), Clava Cairns, and a distillery tour and whisky tasting. Our guide was James and we thought this a day well spent, James was very informative and put everyone at ease.

A thoroughly enjoyable and interesting day. Our driver & guide, James, was excellent and kept us informed and entertained for the entire trip. A wonderful way to see the Highlands and it was also very good value.
