Itinerario

Scoprite i segreti della lavorazione della bevanda nazionale scozzese nella sua varietà più pregiata: il whiskey single malt. Da Edimburgo sarete diretti a Oveste, superato Stirling, visiterete la distilleria di Glengoyne, situata ai piedi delle graziose colline Campsie Hills, che forniscono l’acqua necessaria alla produzione del whisky. Il tour vi mostrerà il procedimento, semplice ma ricco di magia, attraverso cui orzo, acqua e lievito si trasformano in whisky.

Dopo un panoramico viaggio verso le rive del Loch Lomond, arriverete al più suggestivo parco nazionale scozzese, dove vi aspetta un pranzo gustoso in un ottimo pub, con la possibilità di assaporare alcune delle migliori birre locali. Dopo pranzo vi consigliamo una breve passeggiata fino al punto panoramico che dà sul loch e sulle sue isole, per poi dirigersi alla distilleria di Deanston.

Questo antico cotonificio sulle rive del fiume Teith è un luogo di grande interesse e produce whisky dal gusto unico. Dopo un pomeriggio di relax tornerete a Edimburgo con nuove storie e sapori impressi nella mente.

Vi segnaliamo che l’ingresso e la degustazione nelle distillerie NON sono inclusi nel prezzo, così da darvi più ampie possibilità di scelta. Le visite e le degustazioni costano circa 20 sterline.

Itinerary (English)

Your tour takes you west past Stirling to Glengoyne distillery.

The tour here introduces you to the simple but magical process of turning barley, water, and yeast into whisky.

From here, you take a scenic drive to the shores of Loch Lomond for a tasty pub lunch and the chance to sample some local beers. After lunch we recommend a short walk to the viewpoint overlooking the loch before heading towards the second distillery of the day.

This converted cotton mill on the banks of the River Teith has many interesting features and produces some unique whisky flavours. After a relaxed afternoon visit here you return to Edinburgh with the stories and flavours of single malt whisky fresh in your mind.

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?
