Whisky Distilleries

A whisky stillWhisky (or in Gaelic, Uisge Beatha “the water of life’) is synonymous with Scotland and distilleries are found throughout the country, each area producing distinctly different spirits.

The production of malt whisky is highly skilled and maturation is essential, often in used Bourbon or Sherry casks. Let us take you behind the scenes on a distillery tour during your visit, finishing with a sample of the produce, of course.

Golf

Scotland is also home to the oldest form of golf course, the links, which stretch along coastal areas offering fantastic views and challenging holes.

We will help you discover the Scottish clans in your family tree, their castles, their territories and their tartans.

Wildlife

Golden EagleAs one of the last wildernesses in Europe, Scotland is the home to many forms of wild life. Herds of wild deer roam freely in the mountains, eagles soar overhead and in our coastal waters it is common to see pods of dolphins, seals and several species of whales. Bird species abound such as the native puffin along with many migratory birds.

We can offer many opportunities to view Scotland’s wildlife in its natural environment from land or sea.
