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 Scotland's largest National Park. Contrast this with island distilleries on the west coast, such as iconic Talisker on the rugged Isle of Skye, and the islands of the Inner Hebrides where you'll find Lochranza on the Arran. However, perhaps the most renowned single-malt distilleries of Laphroaig, Ardbeg, Lagavulin and Bruichladdich are found on Islay. Why not also 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?
At Macs we have a few whisky connoisseurs within our ranks - read Erin's tasting notes blog from Scotland's whisky regions for some great inspiration. Other options for whisky lovers include Scottish Island Hopscotch cycling holiday in the Inner Hebrides with plenty of opportunities to visit distilleries along the way, or a whisky discovery tour for a non-activity-based option.
