Embark on your adventure at 8.45am, say goodbye to Edinburgh and hello to the ancient Scottish capital of Stirling – home to the iconic Wallace Monument and legendary Castle. Your HAGGiS guide will regale you with the bloody tales of Scotland’s most passionate patriot – William Wallace. Be prepared to hear more Braveheart quotes than you can shake a claymore at, as you learn of Wallace’s integral part in the War of Independence. *Shouts* ‘They may take our lives, but they'll never take our freeeeeedom!’ Feeling impassioned, we venture further into the rugged Scottish Highlands, before stopping to fill our bellies at a local Highland Whisky Distillery Take the tour to discover how Scotland's national drink is made and impress your mates when you marvel at how this whisky is: ‘steeped in peat smoke’ whilst you enjoy a well-earned dram. Nicely warmed by the whisky, we head to the Hermitage in the heart of Perthshire and explore the woodland and rushing Black Linn Falls on the River Braan. Our return journey visits the quaint village of Dunkeld, in Macbeth country, whose stunning cathedral sits by the banks of the River Tay. We return to Edinburgh at around 5.30pm, passing the iconic Forth Bridge on the way. (Routes are subject to change)
In 2011 HAGGiS Adventures teamed up with 'Trees for Life', a Scottish charity specifically dedicated to restoring 1,000 square miles of self-sustaining, wild, Caledonian Forest with the aim of helping Scotland 'Stay Wild'. We have pioneered an Eco Scheme where you can make an optional £2 donation when booking any tour. We will match every pound you donate, with proceeds going to the Trees for Life.
Some people squish up their face. Some stamp their foot on the ground. Others let out a loud 'ahhhhhh'. However you react to whisky, don't let it stop you from going on this fantastic optional guided tour. You'll discover the history behind Scotland's most divisive drink. You'll discover how it's made. And hopefully, you'll discover how to love it. Free miniature included.
