Duration: 5 Days
COUNTRIES VISITED: Scotland
PLACES VISITED: Edinburgh, Stirling Castle, County of Fife
After landing to Edinburgh proceed to the hotel & get check In, spend your day in Leisure & night in hotel. Day free on Own.
After breakfast at the hotel we shall proceed to our first destination, travelling through the landscapes of the most important battles of the Scottish Wars of Independence, known to the general public for the film Braveheart (or Brave Heart) by Mel Gibson. We will thus visit Stirling Castle, from which we can see the William Wallace Monument in the Throne Room and we will visit the favourite palace of the Stuart dynasty, apart from Mary, Queen of Scotland. Post finishing the tour move back to hotel. Overnight at hotel.
Today we will discover the secrets of whiskey making. The guided tour of the distillery entirely in Spanish/English will end with a tasting so that you can enjoy the authentic taste of Scotch whiskey. Post visiting the distillery get back to hotel.
We recommend a VIP experience at one of the distilleries still on the list, which includes Glenallachie, Glenfarclas, or The Glenlivet.
The Glenlivet has a small cafeteria for a light lunch or snacks. Or make your way to Ballindalloch Castle, which has a cafe and tearoom serving up sandwiches for a light lunch. There is not a lot on offer for lunch in this area, so take a look at these options and figure out how far away you will be. In the end, even heading back towards Aberlour or Craigellachie is not too far out of the way.
Head to Ballindalloch Castle to explore the castle gardens and the interior rooms. Ballindalloch also has its own, newer distillery for a tasting, or Cragganmore Distillery is nearby.
Head towards Aberlour to dine at The Dowans Hotel. They offer two options, Spé and 57, as well as a stellar selection of Speyside gins and tons of options for Speyside whisky tasting.
This day we can enjoy the scenery of the county of Fife, located on the eastern coast of the country. The mountains and valleys of this town are home to the best golf courses and clubs in all of Scotland and, of course, the British Museum of Golf, next to the Old Course. The first thing we will do is a panoramic tour of the city to show you everything that can be visited: its cathedral, its castle, its golf course, its beaches and its most outstanding streets. It will therefore be the ideal time to have lunch.
Although Saint Andrews is known to be the birthplace of golf, it is its University that occupies most of the historic centre of the city. Together with its Cathedral, both buildings will be two of the tourist attractions for which you will have to take time to visit. Finally, we can enjoy a walk along the impressive beaches of the North Sea to appreciate the coastal beauty of the country.
On our way back to Edinburgh we have time for one last stop before the end of the tour. The Forth bridges viewpoint where you can take the best view of the 3 impressive bridges that connect Edinburgh and South of Scotland with Inverness, Aberdeen and the Highlands.
Special point of interest is the railway bridge, which enjoyed being the longest bridge of its time (in the 19th century) and later incorporated into the World Heritage Site.
