Guide

Trip Info

Embark on a tour to the heart of Malt Whisky country where you will tour two historic distilleries – Cardhu and Glenlivet – and enjoy a dram or two of their classic malts. There will be time for you to pop into the distilleries at Aberlour and Glenfarclas and explore their well-stocked shops.

Arriving in Speyside you visit a historic wool mill dating back to 1784 and watch some of the oldest weaving looms still in operation in Scotland. They offer a range of products made from textiles woven on site, including the exclusive Knockando Woolmill Tartan.
Your lunch stop is taken in the charming village of Aberlour, which has a choice of places to eat. Our recommendation would be The Mash Tun, where they have the exclusive Glenfarclas Family Collection of malts, many of them rare bottlings.

After a full day of distillery visits, you can sit back and enjoy the views as we head back to Inverness, travelling through the northern parts of the majestic Cairngorms National Park.
