Balmoral Castle, the Lower Speyside Distilleries and Glamis Castle
This tour is ideal for anyone who delights in one of the many well-known Speyside single malt whiskies and who would like to visit the beautiful area they are distilled in. Clients who have a specific Speyside brand of choice will where possible be taken to tour that particular distillery and if for some reason we are unable to deal with that particular request, to another distillery in the locale as suggested by your driver / guide.
If it is possible and Queen Elizabeth II is not in residence at Balmoral Castle on Royal Deeside a stop will be made there but in some weeks in August and September the Castle will be closed as she takes her annual break here away from the limelight as head of the British Royal Family.
On the second day as you head south you will stop at Glamis Castle the ancestral home of the Earl of Strathmore – the childhood home of the much loved Queen Mother and the birthplace of the late Princess Margaret the younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II. From there you will journey back to Edinburgh through the rolling Angus countryside, the county of Fife and the Firth of Forth.
NB: A SIMILAR EXPERIENCE CAN ALSO BE ARRANGED OVER ONE OR MORE DAYS. YOU CAN CHOOSE ANY ONE OR MORE OF SCOTLAND’S ONE HUNDRED FABULOUS DISTILLERIES.
All time based journeys will be charged by the hour from the time the vehicle leaves the local office to the time it returns.
