Day 1
Edinburgh - Dunkeld - Pitlochry - Dalwhinnie - Grantown on Spey

Your three-day Scotch Whisky trip begins with the ride north into the Highlands, leaving Edinburgh at 9:00am. For a short walk through the forest to some atmospheric waterfalls, the first stop will be the historical village of Dunkeld.

You will make your first distillery visit at Dalwhinnie after lunch in Pitlochry-the highest distillery in the country and the nearest to the source of the Spey River. From here, through Cairngorm National Park, you follow the river north to the small town of Grantown on Spey-your base for the next two nights.

Day 2
Grantown on Spey - Benromach - Elgin - Aberlour - Cardhu Distillery - Grantown on Spey

Spend a whole day exploring the most popular whisky area in Scotland!

Your first stop of the day will be at the family-owned Benromach Distillery for a customized tour after a scenic drive towards the coast. From here, one of the world’s leading specialist whisky bottlers and manufacturers, Elgin-home to Gordon and Macphail-is a short distance away.

Afterwards, for a visit to the Speyside Cooperation, you will ride back up the Spey to Craigellachie, where you will see another component of the whisky making process (departures only Wednesday).

You’ll visit Cardhu Distillery after lunch here or in the nearby Aberlour. Cardhu is Johnnie Walker Black Label’s most important whisky.

Then we’re going back to Grantown on Spey.

Day 3
Grantown on Spey - Glenlivet - Braemar - Edinburgh

The third day of the trip takes you on your way back to Edinburgh via the stunning Cairngorm Mountains.

You’ll be visiting Glenlivet throughout the morning-not only a distillery, but also a stunning glen with great walks and wonderful wildlife.

Later, you’ll pass the famous Castle of Balmoral and rest in the village of Braemar, in the center of the national park. From here, the south route passes the highest mountain pass in Scotland, then through Perthshire before returning about 6:30pm to 6 Waterloo Place, Edinburgh.
