If you’re a fan of Scottish whisky, then our Highlands drink experiences are just thing for you! What’s more, brewery and distillery tours often come with personal transport, collecting you from a central location or your accommodation. As such, there’s no need for a designated driver, you can simply sit back and enjoy the scenery.
After all, Highlands drink experiences aren’t just about sampling a “wee dram”. In fact, they go beyond your regular whisky and wine tasting. The Highlands themselves deliver some of the most dramatic scenery in the UK, attracting 1000’s of tourists to Scotland throughout the year.
Some of the best times to visit the Highlands are for Hogmanay (31st December, New Year’s Eve) or during Burns Night (25th January). Although, be warned it can get very cold throughout the winter, but it’s a time the mountainous terrain can look at its most stunning.
