Isle of Islay Whisky Tour

For the whisky enthusiast

A whisky tour of Islay as part of your private adventure tour of Scotland is a fantastic way to get to know the history and the charm of one of Scotland’s oldest and most successful industries. This example itinerary would take you to Islay via the dramatic landscapes and sea lochs of the Argyll Peninsula. We’d pass through the beautiful village of Luss on Loch Lomond, and travel over the famous Rest & Be Thankful mountain pass.

On Islay, your knowledgeable local guide will get you close to the action and give you a personal insight into the wealth of history, traditions, and craftsmanship of whisky creation. You will learn about the distilling process, experience the heady atmosphere, and see the inside of the stills. Towards the end of your tour you will of course have the opportunity to taste the whisky (or “uisge beatha” in Gaelic).
