Excursão de um dia sobre uísque e até as cachoeiras de Highland, saindo de Edimburgo
Após uma pausa para esticar as pernas, retorne ao ônibus e continue para o norte para Highlands, desfrutando as vistas dos belos gados (ou ‘wee hairy coos', como os escoceses podem dizer) que vagueiam a região rural selvagem e varrida pelo vento. Viaje por Loch Earn, admirando sua beleza e encante-se pela riqueza das cores de Loch Lomond e do Parque Nacional de Trossachs enquanto passa pelo parque aberto.
No início da tarde, faça uma parada para um almoço leve em uma das mais famosas destilarias de uísque da Escócia - The Famous Grouse. Se você estiver interessado em saber mais sobre uísque e sua produção, desfrute de uma excursão à destilaria para ver como os maltes são secos e amadurecidos (por sua conta). Depois de explorar o local, reencontre com todos os membros do grupo que optaram por não fazer a excursão e prove um pequeno gole de uísque para reanimar o seu humor.
Continue no coração de Perthshire e pare para uma caminhada no Hermitage, belo local popular onde bosques de árvores enquadram as cachoeiras e as águas jorrando do Rio Braan. Passeie pela floresta até a espetacular cachoeira Black Linn Falls de Hermitage, e depois de descansar e tirar fotos, inicie sua jornada de volta para Edimburgo.
Desfrute de uma última parada na pitoresca aldeia de Dunkeld, mencionado por Shakespeare em Macbeth, e visite a deslumbrante Catedral de Dunkeld às margens do Rio Tay. Passe pela impressionante Forth Bridge logo ao lado de Edimburgo e, em seguida, termine a sua excursão no ponto de partida.

Wonderful tour. Beautiful countryside. Whisky tour was worth it. The guide's knowledge was a little questionable.
The tour of the Famous Grouse distillery was great. The sampling room was my favorite! The Black Linn Falls, Dunkeld, Hermitage, Sterling Castle and the William Wallace monument. ALL great visits.
Guide, Yvonne, great. Very enthusiastic. Didn't really see the castle/not enough time in Sterling.
Distillery tour is ok. The main problem I felt is less time at attractions. As soon as we reached at the distillery, the tour started. After the tour we literally rushed to the restaurant to grab something to eat and use restrooms. By the time we were done, it was time to leave. The bus was parked a little far away. So couldn't even take a few photographs from outside. And photography is not allowed inside. But the inside tour was really good. Another time problem was at Wallace Monument. The tour guide had given us 30 mins. It takes about 10 mins to walk to the monument from where the bus was parked. There is a mini bus service, but looking at the frequency, it takes about the same time. When we reached the monument, we found out that there is 10 ticket to go inside which our tour guide never mentioned. There was no point in buying a ticket because there was absolutely no time. So just clicked 3-4 photographs from outside and rushed back because we all needed to use restroom and this was our first halt before continuing our journey. Though there is a lot of history around it, visiting Wallace monument was a flop show. Before we started the tour, we paid for distillery tour at the center. Distillery tour is not included in the tour price and we were already aware of it. The lady gave us the receipt but did not give us the tickets and we did not know that we are supposed to have it. When we were in the bus we noticed that everybody has something which looked like a visiting card and then we inquired and we found out that those were actually the tickets. And it was just before we started so we were able to collect it but it would have been good if the tour guide had asked us when he was giving us instructions.
