Select Option


The Speyside Whisky day tour from Edinburgh is the perfect opportunity to experience three of Scotland's most iconic whisky distilleries in undoubtably the most famous whisky region in the world.

Departing from Edinburgh this tour not only takes in some stunning distilleries, but also some beautiful scenery and historic locations along the road. Your driver and private tour guide will explain the story of these places with stories and folklore as you travel between whisky distilleries.

We have individually chosen The Glenlivet Distillery, Strathisla Distillery and Macallan Distillery for stops on this trip as we believe they represent the past, present and future of whisky distillation in the region.

However, if you have a specific distillery in mind please ask and we will do what we can to accommodate your wishes.

Our premium Mercedes minivans are ideal for the journey, offering unrivalled comfort for up to 6 passengers. Bottled water and wifi is complimentary onboard.
