Explore the hillside of Speyside amid Whiskey Festival which will be held next in 2018, from May 3rd to May 7th. Every year, the doors to Speyside’s well known refineries are open. Welcoming guests from over the globe to meet the master distillers and taste the impeccable single malt whiskies they produce. The biggest occasion of its kind on the planet, eagerly anticipated by whisky connoisseurs. During that time, you can say that the Speyside brings malt and music together. From internationally acclaimed Scottish folk-rock bands to much loved young local musicians.


One of the features is the Glenlivet Smugglers’ One Life Livet Tour. In the eighteenth and nineteenth Century, the hidden Glen was the whisky refining capital of the world. Today it’s the home to world’s renowned ‘The Glenlivet’. The visit offers a special insight into the fascinating life of the distillers. A 8 wheeled Argocat will take you off road through a dazzling scenes for a unique whisky adventure. Afterward, a lunch of Scottish cuisine in a redesigned stone bothy on the slants of Cairn Laith; following by a voyage through The Glenlivet Distillery.

In case you are into fishing, I would suggest the Macallan’s Ghillie’s Tour and BBQ Lunch. This is a novel affair to meet Robert Mitchell for a chat over refreshments about the compelling River Spey. Robert will go with visitors on a walk covering a portion of the 1.5 miles of angling beat owned by The Macallan and share his knowledge about the distinctive pools of the stream. After that you will return to the fishing hut for a BBQ lunch and a measure of one of Robert’s most loved Macallan expressions.
