What could be better than being transported by luxury train around Scotland to discover some of its best distilleries?
The Royal Scotsman has this year introduced a range of new special interest journeys including a tour for the whisky enthusiast - ‘Spirit of Scotland’ - a four-night journey hosted by top whisky writer and expert Charles Maclean.
This journey takes in famous distilleries across the different whisky-producing regions, including Glenmorangie, Talisker, Glenlivet and Edradour.
There are private tastings of old and rare whiskies accompanied by lively discussion of the virtues of Scotland’s national drink. The tour also includes a traditional Scottish ceilidh at Strathisla Distillery, ‘the home and heart of Chivas Regal.’
This year the dates for the Spirit of Scotland whisky tour are 6th–10th September. To find out more call +44 (0)131 555 1344 or visit http://www.royalscotsman.com
