Tour Details

On this captivating tour, you’ll first be enchanted by the breathtaking shores of Loch Leven and the charming, tranquil village of Falkland. Then, prepare to uncover the fascinating history of whisky as you explore Lindores Distillery, where its origins were first documented.

Itinerary

Starting from your preferred location, your very own personal driver will pick you up to start your adventure for the day!

As you leave Edinburgh, one of the first things you’ll see is the Forth Rail Bridge. An iconic image of Scotland, the famous red structure was voted the most important manmade structure in Scotland, so it’s no wonder it’s now become a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Driving through rolling hills and towering mountains, you will pass by the still and beautiful waters of Loch Leven.  A fantastic picture opportunity and a perfect start to your tour.

Falkland Palace is actually home to the world’s oldest surviving royal tennis court – and was one of Mary Queen of Scots’ favourite Royal Hunting Lodges. She was enchanted by the palace and its extensive formal gardens, where she would often pursue her hobbies in falconry, hunting, archery and tennis.

The historic village of Falkland might feel familiar to you if you’re a fan of the much-loved ‘Outlander’ series. It served as a filming location for the opening scenes where Claire and Frank arrive for their second honeymoon.

Lindores Distillery is among the most interesting distilleries in Scotland. Although the centre opened recently in 2017, it sits on the historic site where whisky originated. Dating back to 1494, this old farm/monastery witnessed King James 4th imposing a tax on the spirit, thus officially marking the creation of whisky.

*During peak times, this distillery tour may be unavailable. We’ll offer an alternative distillery tour and confirm with you before booking.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the breathtaking scenic drive as we return to Edinburgh.
