What to expect

Have you ever wanted to visit the famous Scottish Highlands? Are you fascinated by the mystical folklore, William Wallace, the famous warrior, the wild scenery and the fascinating history that’s been the pride of Scotland for centuries? This one day tour from Edinburgh takes you to some of the most beautiful sites of the Scottish Highlands, such as the Wallace Monument, Perthshire’s beautiful scenic glens, Gleneagles Hotel Estate home of the 2014 Ryder Cup and Scotland’s oldest distillery, The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret (Est. 1775). You will have the opportunity to visit the interactive Taste Experience Bar and enjoy a tour and tasting. Take a woodland walk at The Hermitage and enjoy a brief visit to the quaint town of South Queensferry. Stop for a gorgeous photo shoot of the spectacular Forth Bridges.

Here’s how your full day tour is going to happen. On a brisk morning, get on a comfortable luxury coach in Edinburgh and head west where you will first stop to visit the Wallace Museum in Stirling, a towering stone testimonial to the Scottish warrior William Wallace. Inside you will find fascinating exhibits leading you through the life of the real Braveheart, and most impressive of all, Wallace’s legendary 5ft 6in (1.7m) tall broadsword (as an additional option).

You will then continue traveling through the charming countryside of Perthshire to your next stop in Crieff, where you’ll be able to visit The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery (as an additional option). Discover how the traditional whisky is made, see how you measure up to the world’s largest bottle of whisky and sample some of ‘The Water of Life’ itself at the fantastic Taste Experience bar. Enjoy a range of tasty lunch options in the Glenturret Café or take a stroll in the distillery grounds.

Once you’ve had a good lunch, get ready to travel some more through the picturesque scenery of the “Sma’Glen” until you reach the beautiful Hermitage for a short woodland walk (time permitting). Afterwards, you will continue on to the town of Dunkeld, where you'll break for refreshments and a visit to ancient Dunkeld Cathedral. You will then leave Perthshire and journey to the charming town of South Queensferry, where you’ll have the opportunity to get off the bus and admire magnificent views of the Forth Bridges before returning to Edinburgh.
