Itinerario

Dopo aver attraversato il ponte Forth Road Bridge proseguirete fino a Perth e Dunkfeld, fino a raggiungere il sito protetto dell’Hermitage e la Foresta di Birnam, resa celebre dal Macbeth di Shakespeare. Camminerete fra gli alberi più alti di tutta la Scozia, circondati da meravigliose cascate. Il tour continuerà verso Nord, con un pranzo a Pitlochry, per poi dirigersi al punto panoramico di Queen’s View sul Loch Tummel.

Nel pomeriggio attraverserete le montagne fino allo splendido Loch Tay, alle pendici dell’imponente Ben Lawers. Qui farete una sosta nel pittoresco villaggio di Kenmore, in riva al loch. La giornata si concluderà con una visita al Dewar’s World of Whiskey nella distilleria di Aberfeldy, per scoprire i segreti del whisky single malt prima del ritorno a Edimburgo.

Itinerary (English)

Leave Edinburgh and travel over the Forth Road Bridge to the Kingdom of Fife.

Travelling north the scenery changes from the rolling farmland of the lowlands to forested hills and mountains as you approach the highland fault line.

On the banks of the River Tay you find the gorgeous cathedral town of Dunkeld. You stop here and have the chance to explore the architecturally fascinating cathedral and the quaint streets of this picturesque village.

It's a short drive from here to the Hermitage, where you can take a fantastic woodland walk leading up to the Black Linn Falls.

Leaving the Hermitage you follow the wide valley of the River Tay towards the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry. You spend around one hour here, so you can visit the many great shops or have lunch.

After lunch, you take a scenic drive through the mountains of Highland Perthshire, and take a short stop at the Queen's View overlooking Loch Tummel. On a clear day the view here is awe-inspiring as it looks over to the unmistakable peak of Schiehallion and beyond to the mountains of Glencoe.

Continuing alongside Loch Tummel, you head over the hills into the ancient lands of Breadalbane, or the ‘High Country’ surrounding Loch Tay. You make a stop at the waterside village of Kenmore with a chance to walk along the shores of the loch and enjoy the views to Ben Lawers.

From here you travel the short distance to the town of Aberfeldy and Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery, where you can discover the secret of how Scotland's national drink is made.

After enjoying a dram of our ‘water of life’, the tour returns you to the lowlands and back to Edinburgh.

Fantastic tour!

Kimberley de Jonge Posted on 26/06/2017

On monday 19th of June we took the highland lochs, glens whisky tour with Ewan B. He made our trip so exciting because of his knowledge, his enthusiasm and all the stories that he told us. We made some beautiful pictures and just had a fantastic day! We will certainly come back one day and visit the highlands again!

Great Experience

Simone Croeser Posted on 29/05/2017

On the 20th of May we did the Highlands Lochs, Glens and Whisky tour with Stefan as our guide for the day. Stefan was very informative and witty - a great guide. The tour was just amazing and we loved every minute. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone that enjoys the beautiful highlands and has an appreciation for whisky.

Thanks for a great day

Dana Kubisova Posted on 16/09/2016

We spent really great day with Judy. She is an excellent story teller. I went back to my young years and was feeling like a child listening to fairy-tales. Thanks a lot, Judy. When I am reading other posts I only wonder how did Rabbie’s find so many people with such enthusiasm and love for their job. I wish you all the best, go on!

A big thankyou

Alan Sanderson Posted on 20/02/2016

We joined your tour on 15/2/16 and would like to say how much we enjoyed it. The guide (Aaron) was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly and humourous who l must say made the day extra special. The new driver on the tour (Nick) made everyone feel safe. Thank you Rabbies.

fantastic

Boyd penner Posted on 25/05/2015

We had an amazing day with Grant. This lad was a bard born 400 years too soon. His story telling with music were amazing. We learned loads and had a lot of fun. We saw an amazing view of history with amazing stories. Grant absolutely loves his job and it shows. Thanks for a great day, Boyd and Heather.

Huge thanks to Party Pete!

Madoka Harada Posted on 01/04/2015

I initially joined the tour simply because I wanted to go to a whisky distillery, but as soon as the tour started, I instantly became a fan of our superb guide, Party Pete. Full of knowledge of various aspects of Scotland, talked in a way thats easy for even a non-native English speaker like me to understand, and was entertaining. I loved all the little episodes he talked about. In my opinion, a tour guide sometimes could be more important that the theme of the tour or where we are going. If I visit Scotland again and have such an opportunity, I would definately choose a tour that is guided by him. Thank you so much for a great day, Pete!

Alan.

Natalie Wilson Posted on 17/03/2015

Let me just start by saying this tour was one of the highlights of my spring break. Alan was our tour guide and he couldn't have been more fun and informative, we loved him!! He seemed to know everything, and I mean EVERYTHING about where he took us and the history behind it. We were all on the edge of our seats every time he told us a story. I learned more in one day with Alan than I did after a semester in a history class. Basically, Alan was the best. The tour itself was also breath-taking, we went on the Highland Lochs, Glens and Whiskey day tour on March 13th, and I fell in love many times with Scotland's countryside. Thanks Alan!! You're the bomb. (Also seriously, apply for a voice-over job for the history channel)((but don't quit rabbies because we're definitely coming back, and requesting you))

Fabuous Day

jen Sauer Posted on 07/11/2014

This tour was fantastic. James made it amazing. It set the rest of our vacation up to be one of the best ever. James' expertise and knowledge helped us to understand the history of Scotland in a fun way. We are sure our Scotland vacation would not have been as terrific as it was without James. For the following two weeks, we referenced what James taught us on day 2 of our trip. Highly recommend any tour that James is on as it will make your vacation!

and whisky!

Olga Posted on 27/06/2014

This was just perfect! Thanks a lot to Shelby!!! Very interesting and entertaining! The only problem was that... some people in the group just don't understand that there are other people on the tour and don't care very much to come in time and keep quiet when they are on the bus... But you can't do much about it, unfortunately )

Thank you Mac

barbara Posted on 02/01/2014

Our guide was Mac Dalrymple and he was the best guide in my life. The trip was amazing. We went cross beautiful scottish highland, listening folk music and many and many stories Mac told us. And he is very good narrator. Every stop we made was something special. Mac made this trip unforgettable. Thank you Mac!

FAQs

Do you offer hotel pickups in the departure cities?

The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.

Is there parking close to the departure point?

We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.

When should I get to the departure point?

Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.

What happens if I'm late or miss the tour?

If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.

What are your cancellation policies?

We have a cancellation period of three days for our one day tours, and 21 days for longer tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.

What is a guaranteed departure?

It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.

Can I pre-book a specific seat?

Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.

Are there toilets on the bus?

Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.

Do you take children on your tours?

We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.

You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.

How much time do I get off the bus?

We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.

Why do you exclude visitor attractions?

We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.

Do we need to bring our own lunch?

You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.

Should I tip the driver-guide?

Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.

What about travel insurance?

We advise you take out travel insurance. You can click here for excellent rates.

I have more questions, who can help me?

If you have any more questions, call us on +44(0)131 226 3133, email tours@rabbies.com, or check out our full FAQs.
