The Malt Whisky Experience

from Edinburgh

Highlights: Scenic East Lothian tour and Glenkinchie Malt Whisky Distillery (optional)
Malt Whisky or Uisge Beatha (meaning "the water of life", in Gaelic) is one of the icon’s of Scotland and no visit to Edinburgh would be complete without a visit to a whisky distillery.

Not far from Edinburgh, where the Lammermuir Hills begin to roll down towards the banks of the Firth of Forth lies the farming county of East Lothian. Known as the "Garden of Scotland” the gentle rolling countryside has fields that are fed by water softy rolling down from the hills. Our famous poet, Robert Burns, described this land as "the most glorious corn country I have ever seen”. The tradition of farming these lands continues to this day, as we shall see.

Glenkinchie Distillery is one of only two working Lowland malt whisky distilleries and produces the Glenkinchie Malt Whisky, one of the famous Classic Malts. Discover the secrets behind this famous whisky with a unique behind-the-scenes all-senses tour. Enjoy a wee dram of Glenkinchie Single Malt to remind you of your tour then visit an exhibition of malt whisky in the museum. There's an extensive shop full of souvenirs for the whisky enthusiast too.

Afterwards we drive through the beautiful East Lothian countryside passing Haddington and St. Mary's Church dating from the 14th century. We continue to North Berwick to view the massive Bass Rock which sits in the Firth of Forth, home to thousands of seabirds.

After a lunch stop our journey takes us past ruined Dirleton Castle famous for its walled gardens and 17th Century bowling green. We then pass Muirfield championship golf course and follow the coastal route to Musselburgh, a small fishing town with superb views of the Firth of Forth before arriving in Edinburgh.
