Leave Edinburgh and travel over the Queensferry Crossing to the Kingdom of Fife.
Travelling north the scenery changes from the rolling farmland of the lowlands to forested hills and mountains as you approach the highland fault line.
On the banks of the River Tay you find the gorgeous cathedral town of Dunkeld. You stop here and have the chance to explore the architecturally fascinating cathedral and the quaint streets of this picturesque village.
It’s a short drive from here to the Hermitage, where you can take a fantastic woodland walk leading up to the Black Linn Falls.
Leaving the Hermitage you follow the wide valley of the River Tay towards the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry. You spend around one hour here, so you can visit the many great shops or have lunch.
After lunch, you take a scenic drive through the mountains of Highland Perthshire, and take a short stop at the Queen’s View overlooking Loch Tummel. On a clear day the view here is awe-inspiring as it looks over to the unmistakable peak of Schiehallion and beyond to the mountains of Glencoe.
Continuing alongside Loch Tummel, you head over the hills into the ancient lands of Breadalbane, or the ‘High Country’ surrounding Loch Tay. You make a stop at the waterside village of Kenmore. From here you travel the short distance to the town of Aberfeldy and Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery, where you can discover the secret of how Scotland’s national drink is made.
After enjoying a dram of our ‘water of life’, the tour returns you to the lowlands and back to Edinburgh.
