  1. Meeting Point
  2. Tour Overview

    Get ready to explore the Speyside region and Scotland’s most delectable industry.

    You depart Inverness, travel east into the region of Moray, and follow the Moray Firth coastline. After a short drive, you arrive at the Glen Moray Distillery.

    Here, you may join a tour and discover the different areas of whisky production and sample the golden-hued spirit itself.

    If there’s time, you head to the quaint coastal village of Findhorn. It’s a great spot to breathe in the fresh sea air and capture glorious views over the Moray Firth.

    You travel to Elgin, where you have free time to sightsee, shop, or savour some local cuisine. If you fancy seeing some gorgeous ruins, you can visit Elgin Cathedral. And if you want to shop, you can find some fantastic souvenirs in the Gordon and Macphail food and drink shop. This is an excellent emporium of independently bottled whiskies, Scottish Gins, local beers.

    From Elgin, you venture south towards the river Spey and pass several distilleries that prove how much the industry has dominated the area for generations. You cross the river, and if there’s time you may stop for a photograph of the water and a historic bridge.

    You arrive at Strathisla Distillery. This is the spiritual home of the world-famous Chivas Regal. Since 1786, this distillery has been producing Scotland's national beverage. You may take an extensive tour including a tasting of their delicious whiskies.

    Your journey back to Inverness follows the river Fiddich to Craigellachie, where we should be able to stop for a photo of the Speyside Cooperage.

    The last leg of the journey takes you through the lovely scenery of Strathspey with views of the Cairngorm mountains.
