2 Days Isle of Islay Whisky Tour
Meeting point anywhere in Edinburgh. Other locations are possible, on request.
Recommended tour time: 6:00 – 21:00 ( 12-14 hours), in order to catch the early ferry.
This tour is specially designed for those who have only 2 days available, to see the best of the Scottish Islands and Whiskey making. It is recommended that the tour is extended to 3 or even 4 Days, for a much latter start can be planned, and more Whiskey Distilleries and attraction can be visited, including some of the best on the way to and from Islay, with considerable extra comfort.
Islay is an excellent example of a Scottish island. It is also called the Queen of the Hebrides. Rich in history, epic scenery and world-famous for its Whiskies.
Your private Chauffeur will welcome you to our luxurious Jaguar XJ. Leaving Edinburgh and head to the Port of Kennacraig, while enjoying breakfast pastries and freshly made hot coffee or tea, in the car. The very early start will ensure we reach on time for the ferry boat and allow time to visit up to 2 distilleries on that same day. The cruise to Islay lasts 2 hours and allows time to enjoy views of the nearby islands and enjoy a meal and a drink onboard the ferry. Later meeting time is also an option and as the distilleries will be closing at 5 or 6 at the afternoon ( each operates different time frame), there might still be time for one distillery visit, or at least tour the island and its scenic routes for that perfect photo, before heading to your hotel. Your Chauffeur will be able to provide options for dinner at any time, and even a traditional Scottish pub, for a relaxing drink.
The best 9 distilleries are as follows:
- Caol lla
You can start the day at 9, or a bit later if you prefer a later start, and visit as many of the rest distilleries as you want, that time allows. The whiskey tours of each distillery will complement your knowledge and experience of each, elevating your taste and senses. Fine snacks are always served in the car, and an option for proper lunch and dinner is always there for you when you wish it.
The last ferry to the mainland is at the afternoon, depending on the exact day. Get the chance to visit Port Askaig and enjoy a drum of fine whiskey at the pub there, while waiting for the last ferry. While on the ferry, the view of the Island of Jura is stunning and again another fine moment for photography.
On the way back, relax in our luxurious Jaguar, while snacks, coffee and drinks are served. We can drive through Glasgow, Scotland’s biggest city, and eventually take you safely to your door at Edinburgh.
