The Scotch Whisky Experience

This spirited insight into the world of Scotland’s most famous export takes you from its cottage industry beginnings to the global success it is today. All Whisky tours start with a swirling, bubbling barrel ride through a replica distillery as you become part of the Whisky-making process. Along the way you’ll hear the stories behind this magical craft. Throughout your interactive tour, our expert guides and Whisky advisors are with you every sip of the way. Tours finish with a close-up look at the world’s largest collection of Scotch Whisky and the chance to taste Scotch Malt Whisky.

Mary King's Close

The Real Mary King’s Close is buried deep beneath Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. The city’s deepest secret; a warren of hidden streets that has remained frozen in time since the 17th Century.

Arthur's Seat

Arthur's Seat, a dormant volcano, and sits 251m above sea level giving excellent view of the city; it is also the site of a large and well preserved fort. This is one of four hill forts dating from around 2000 years ago. With its diverse range of flora and geology it is also site of Special Scientific Interest. Within the park you can also visit St Anthony’s Chapel - a 15th century medieval chapel, Salisbury Crags – a series of 150 foot cliff faces dominating Edinburgh’s skyline as well as Duddingston Loch – a fresh water loch rich in birdlife.
