Visit Scotland with me and enjoy lunch by the loch followed by a whisky tour and tasting at Glengoyne whisky distillery.
If you are visiting Scotland and looking for a lovely day out to experience wonderful scenery, excellent food and enjoy some whisky, then I have the perfect private bespoke tour from Edinburgh for you.
I will collect you from your accommodation or cruise ship terminal and we will head towards the beautiful Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. The Trossachs are very picturesque and often regarded as Scotland in miniature, with rolling hills, lochs and lots of wildlife.
Depending on where I collect you we will make different detours to view some of Scotland’s historical sites. We may well have an option to build in a morning visit to Stirling Castle, Linlithgow Palace or perhaps The Kelpies.
Around midday we will stop for lunch at Scotland’s best casual dining restaurant, which was awarded the title by Visit Scotland Scottish Thistle Awards. We recently visited for lunch and you can read our review on our blog. There’s lots of delicious options available on the menu but if fish is your preference you can dine on Cullen Skink, Loch Venachar Trout or enjoy a smoked fish platter. You can also sample some local beer from both Harviestoun and Fallen Breweries both of which appear on the menu.
After lunch we will make our way through the Trossachs and over the dramatic Duke’s Pass to Aberfoyle then onwards to Glengoyne Whisky Distillery.
Glengoyne has been in operation since 1833 and being independently owned has complete control over their production methods. Glengoyne has six guiding principles rooted in nearly 200 years of their craft, along with an unwavering commitment to the environment and is a gathering of like-minded people. They believe this to be the Glengoyne Way.
Due to it’s location on the Highland Line the distillery is unique making whisky in the Highlands and then allowing it to mature just across the road in the Lowlands.
The Sunday Times newspaper voted Glengoyne Distillery whisky tours the best in Scotland and I can arrange a suitable tour of the distillery for you. All the tours available are detailed below along with timescales and cost.
After your distillery tour and a few drams we will make our way back to your accommodation or cruise ship terminal.
Glengoyne whisky tours available at the distillery:
Each tour includes a £5 money off voucher, redeemable against any Glengoyne 70cl.
Our tour ends back at your accommodation, or alternatively we can drop you off in Edinburgh to enjoy further drams or dinner.
Lunch, Coffees and entry to Glengoyne are not included in the tour price.
Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss this tour in any more detail or go ahead and book online to reserve your tour date.
If you only have a short timescale available we may still be able to help you experience the very best Scotland has to offer. It’s always worth asking!

Recent feedback our “Visit Scotland in Miniature Tour” from a guest who only had a few hours to enjoy the best of Scotland:
Just short note to say a big thank you for arranging an excellent tour of your beautiful countryside and the lunch in a picturesque place. Although it was a very short and fast tour we did managed to get an insight into whisky making tradition which Scotland is so famous. All in all it was a unique experience for me and my family, and ideal way to start another year for me.
Many thanks for your kindness and excellent service.
With best wishes
