From Sue Slaght
Thank you so much for the wonderful tour on March 27th. We saw so much and I am home with some amazing photographs.
I would like to thank you for a great tour with you on Monday.
It was really nice and entraining. I especially appreciate you taken us to all those beautiful fishing villages (at least it was fishing in the past:-). It was really nice that you share some family stories with us, really interesting to know real people histories instead of just some standard touristic talk. I will for sure recommend you to all my friends that will plan to go to Scotland. I also hope that we will be able to be there next year and there will be a chance to arrange some longer trips with you. Hope we were not very tiring company for you and you like we enjoyed visiting one new distillery (even if smallest in Speyside 🙂 – Benromach
From Mr Beauregard
I wanted to send you a quick note to tell you thank you for taking me and Caleb to the Glen Garioch Distillery and Castle Fraser.
We enjoyed speaking with you and were truly impressed by your wide range of knowledge. Once again thank you for helping to make our trip to Aberdeen more enjoyable.
Be sure to give Lucy a pat on the head from us.
Whisky tour Scotland
Scotland also boasts an impressive list of Whisky Distilleries; 98 in total. We offer tailor-made Whisky Tours to four major Whisky regions.
Famous for its fertile valley of rivers and glens, it is home to over half of Scotland’s distilleries.
With its domineering moorland landscape, Highlands Whiskies are famed for offering a smoky peaty dram with a hint of refined elegance.
Nestled just above England, the Lowlands offer a more mellow Whisky with lighter floral tones.
At the southernmost tip of the Inner Hebrides, its beaten landscapes are key to Islay’s whisky. Islay’s whisky is a complex combination of intense smokiness fused with peat from its natural surroundings.
