Water of Life Tour
7 Day Luxury Coach Tour
Starts September, 2003
Scottish whisky tour based around Scotland's beautiful and plentiful
distilleries. Our suggested route not only takes you on a glorious
Whisky tour but will also show you Scotland in all its glory!
Our "Water of Life" tour starts as soon as we meet you at the
airport! With a wee nip to wake you up after your flight, we head
off right away to Edinburgh, where we visit the Whisky Heritage
Centre right next to the castle. With some free time here in the
Capital, you might like to see the castle! we meet up again late
afternoon and head north to Perth to your hotel for the night.
After evening dinner, should you feel you can take more - why
not come along to the local pub with us for a drink? Your hotel
being in the City centre, you are close to many pubs, of which
we can recommend at least four to you within a five minute walk!
After a lazy morning breakfast around 8am, we head out east following
the coast to Aberdeen, and follow the whisky trail in the region,
stopping at as many distilleries as we can fit in before collapsing
at our hotel for the night in Speyside. We aim to give you a grand
selection of whiskies tonight at the well stocked bar!
It's west today heading through Inverness, where we take a break
from whisky to visit Culloden Battlefield. After a stop here we
continue west down the Great Glen on the shores of Loch Ness,
with a brief stop along the loch we journey always west until
we reach Oban where we sample your favourite nip again at the
Oban Distillery. We give you some hours of free time here in Oban
- Gateway to the Isles - for shopping, relaxation, food and refreshment.
Your hotel will be in town, so you have ample opportunity to sample
some of the many pubs here after your evening meal, why not join
us for a nip?
A day off from whisky today as we take a whole day trip to Mull,
Staffa and Iona. Spectacular scenery, mountains, glens, lochs
and beaches abound along this coastline of Scotland. The varied
scenic points of Mull (we will stop at Duart castle if time allows),
before the wee isle of Iona, birthplace of Christianity in Scotland,
with the coming of St Columba from Ireland, and the dramatic rock
formations of Staffa. A wonderful day out, and back in time for
dinner and a nip in Oban before turning in tonight.
From Oban we head south through Argyll to Kintyre and over to
Islay - famed for its whisky! We cram in as much as we can (time
permitting) today befor eheading to our hotel on the Island for
evening dinner. An Island full of whisky: Bowmore, Ardbeg, Lagavulin,
Laphroaig, Bruichladdich, Bunnahabhain and Caol Ila to mention
some! You wil bespoiled for choice.
Back on mainland again this morning on the
early ferry, we hope you can all stand! Its away to visit Glengoyne
Distillery - last on our tour this time, before heading back into
the City of Glasgow, where we give you a City Tour, then check
into our hotel. You have the remainder of the day free to explore
this, our largest city, before dinner at your city centre hotel.
A round of drinks at the bar to end our tour and a farewell to
you all as its home next day!
