Begin your Scottish distillery tour of discovery in Edinburgh, Scotland's capital, staying in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle at the historic Balmoral Hotel. Enjoy a private city tour and an unforgettable day at the Whisky Heritage Experience, tasting the country's very best brands and viewing the 3,400 bottles of the Diageo Claive Vaidiz Collection. Continue into the Highlands and indulge in a private tasting at Dalwhinnie Distillery and a tour of Blair Castle.

From your accommodations at Culloden House, explore the renowned Speyside region and a handful of over 80 historic distilleries. Here, you will encounter familiar favorites such as Johnnie Walker and Chivas Regal amidst the beauty of the Highlands. Cruise on iconic Loch Ness and explore Cawdor Castle's ruins, and drink in the scenery on picturesque drives with your private chauffeur and luxury car.

Conclude the Scottish whisky tour on the Isle of Islay, Scotland's "Queen of the Hebrides" and home to eight distinct whisky producers. Taste offerings from the island's oldest distillery, Bowmore, all the way up to newcomer Kilchoman while relaxing in the confines of Kilmeny Country House. You will also enjoy a private cruise around the island, with stops at several distilleries and a walk through the RSPB Nature Reserves.
