What to expect

Get ready to explore the Speyside region and Scotland’s most delectable whisky industry.

After departing from Inverness, your first distillery of the day will be at the Benromach Distillery, situated north of the town of Forres. At this small scale independently owned distillery, the friendly staff will explain how they make whisky and show you the different areas of production before giving you a wee sample of the golden-hued spirit itself.

If there’s time, you'll also head to the quaint coastal village of Findhorn. It’s a great spot to breathe in the fresh sea air and capture glorious views over the Moray Firth.

Then you'll continue on to Elgin, for some free time to sightsee, shop, or savor some local foods. If you fancy seeing some gorgeous ruins, you can visit Elgin Cathedral. And if you want to shop, you can find some fantastic souvenirs in the Gordon and Macphail food and drink shop. This is an excellent emporium of independently bottled whiskies, Scottish Gins, local beers.

From Elgin, you venture south towards the river Spey until you arrive at the second distillery of the day: Glenfiddich Distillery. Situated in the famous town of Dufftown, this distillery produces the largest quantity of whisky in Scotland. Your guide will give you an extensive tour including a tasting of the core range of Glenfiddich’s delicious whiskies.

Near to the distillery are the historic ruins of Balvenie Castle which you can take photos of. Or if you’ve had enough whisky for the day, you can skip the Glenfiddich tour and venture into the ruins.

Enjoy the journey back to Inverness following the river Fiddich to Craigellachie and through the lovely scenery of Strathspey with views of the Cairngorm mountains.
