Warriors, Whisky & Waterfalls

Whisky divides people. Some love its fiery warmth; whereas others can’t stand its full-on flavour. But no one disagrees it’s interesting. There’s the history and strange process used to make it, and there’s the people it inspired and its global domination. On this trip we learn about whisky at The Famous Grouse Experience. You also see the wondrous Wallace monument and take a walk through beautiful Scottish woodland. So even if you decide you’ll never-ever drink whisky ever-ever again; at least you’ll have tried it and seen a bit of Scotland along the way…

Itinerary

01

Warriors, Whisky & Waterfalls

Tour starts at 8:45am.

Say goodbye to Edinburgh and hello to the ancient Scottish capital of Stirling – home to the iconic Wallace Monument and legendary Castle. Your HAGGiS guide will regale you with the bloody tales of Scotland’s most passionate patriot – William Wallace. Be prepared to hear more Braveheart quotes than you can shake a claymore at, as you learn of Wallace’s integral part in the War of Independence. *Shouts* ‘They may take our lives, but they'll never take our freeeeeedom!’

Feeling impassioned, we venture further into the rugged Scottish Highlands, before stopping to fill our bellies at the Famous Grouse Experience whisky distillery – think: dancing Grouse!

Take the tour to discover how Scotland's national drink is made and impress your mates when you marvel at how this whisky is: ‘steeped in peat smoke’ whilst you enjoy a well-earned dram.

Nicely warmed from the whisky, we head to the Hermitage in the heart of Perthshire and explore the woodland and rushing Black Linn Falls on the River Braan. Our return journey visits the quaint village of Dunkeld, in Macbeth country, whose stunning cathedral sits by the banks of the River Tay. We return to Edinburgh, passing the iconic Forth Bridge on the way.
