Full description
Depart from Edinburgh and journey north to Kinross where you will make your first stop of the day at Loch Leven. Spend a short while here for a refreshment break and enjoy views across the loch to Lochleven Island and Castle where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned in 1567. 

Continue on to Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery for the first whiskey-themed stop of the day. Spend 2 hours here for a full guided tour of the distillery, warehouse, and interactive heritage exhibition. Taste a 12-year-old single malt, a 12-year-old blended Scotch, and an 18-year-old blended Scotch, matched with chocolate sourced from a local chocolatier. The tour costs £23 for 3 whiskey samples with paired chocolates.

Continue to the village of Aberfeldy for lunch. Spend time here exploring its streets and enjoy the scenery with plenty of time to grab a bite to eat. Head on to Loch Lubnaig, and then to Deanston Distillery - a historic cotton mill which has been distilling whiskey using traditional methods since the 1960s. Stop here to enjoy a whiskey tasting at £13 and enjoy some refreshments in the cafe. Make a final stop for a short photo break at Doune Castle, famous for its appearances in Outlander, Game of Thrones, and Outlaw King, before you return to Edinburgh.
