Whisky and Walking in Scotland

A whisky-lover's dream come true; combine walking through beautiful scenery with visit's to some of the world's best, and oldest, whisky distilleries! This collection of self-guided walking holidays includes short breaks and longer tours of discovery.

Discover the country's "whisky regions", the forested landscape of Speyside that skirts the high Cairngorm mountain plateau in the north east highlands. Contrast this with the island distilleries on the west coast, such as Talisker on the almost mythical Isle of Skye and the other small islands of the Inner Hebrides where you'll find Lochranza on the Isle of Arran. However, perhaps the most renowned single-malt distilleries of Laphroaig, Ardbeg, Lagavulin, and Bruichladdich can be found on Islay. Why not make the hop over to Islay's neighbour - the little laid-back yet mountainous Isle of Jura, and it's lesser known distillery nestled on the island's east coast on our Islay & Jura Whisky Trails trip?

Read about some of the highlights of whisky and walking as well as some tasting notes in our blogs below.
