Trip Info

Linking the landscape which is whisky country with Scotland’s most famous export, this trip is for anyone who wants to understand a wee bit more of what makes the Highlands a special place. During the trip, we’ll take you through the whole whisky story, from source to tasting. This hiking tour includes a visit to Glenlivet distillery, the Cooperage (where the barrels are conditioned and sold on to the distilleries), and the Whisky Castle, home to 100′s of malt whiskies and the world’s largest bottle of whisky.

We’ll hike along smuggler’s routes and through the hills where illicit stills would have abounded in outlaw times.

Note that a moderate level of fitness is required. Hiking will take place every day. Good hiking boots which support your ankles will be necessary.

Your adventure awaits!
