Highlands Day Tour from Edinburgh with Optional Whisky Tour
USD 60.37
Overview
Discover the untamed beauty of rural Scotland on this Highlands day trip from Edinburgh. Travel to the ancient city of Stirling as a guide sheds light on the medieval Wars of Independence. Admire local landmarks including the Wallace Monument, then head into the Trossachs National Park — home to Loch Lomond. Pass Loch Earn on route to one of Scotland's famous whisky distilleries and enjoy an optional tour. Admire the Black Linn Falls on the Braan River, visit the pretty village of Dunkeld, then return to Edinburgh via the Forth Bridge.
What to Expect
Start your tour by leaving Edinburgh and make your way to the ancient Scottish capital of Stirling, its skyline dominated by its castle and the iconic Wallace Monument. Learn about Scotland's most famous patriot and his part in the medieval Wars of Independence.

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

Continue on to the Hermitage in the heart of Perthshire and take a short woodland walk to see the spectacular Black Linn Falls on the River Braan. Visit the quaint village of Dunkeld, in Macbeth country, whose stunning cathedral sits by the banks of the River Tay. Conclude your tour in Edinburgh, passing by the iconic Forth Bridge on the way.

Optional Whisky Distillery Tour
The optional guided tour will give you an insight into how 'uisge beatha' (the 'water of life') is made and takes you on a journey to discover the history behind one of Scotland's most iconic exports. Make sure to purchase this at check-in to avoid any disappointment.

Great fun

Our guide Kirsty knew it all and was a great tour guide telling stories of past and present on the way! It was pouring down all day, meaning the Wallace monument was a bit of a drag, but the distillery and hermitage was great. However...More
