What you'll do

You will be picked-up in the morning at your accommodation and we will visit 3 wonderful distilleries set in the most beautiful locations : Talisker, Torabhaig & Raasay. If time permitting, other whisky stops will be offered during the day. You will return to your accommodation between 5-6PM. 3 years ago, I have started the Skye & Raasay Whisky Trail and it has been extremely well received by my guests. They get to enjoy the experience without having to worry about the driving on single-track roads, the drink/drive laws, the booking of the distillery tours and ferry tickets... All the hassle, stress and inconvenience is dealt with and you are able to sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery and the whisky experience. This is a once in a lifetime luxury experience that you will never forget about! The price is £350 for a one-person booking. We can pick you up around the mainland up to Plockton or Dornie and on the Isle of Skye around the A87 up until Uig. The cost for 2 people would be £430 and I can take up to 8 passengers. At each distillery, we book the classic tour but other types of tours are available at different times of the year. Please enquire for more information or if you have any queries.

Hugh

Hello. My name is Hugh. I am Scottish and grew up on the Isle of Skye. I am the island’s most experienced whisky tour guide. I guided for 8 years at one of the most prestigious distillery in the world. With the construction of 2 new distilleries in the area (Torabhaig & Raasay) in conjuntion with Talisker, I have pioneered the Skye & Raasay Whisky Trail. I am the only whisky guide to offer this experience in one-day. I have excellent knowledge of the distillation process and have hosted many whisky tasting masterclasses. I am a private bus license holder and have a very comfortable Volkswagen Transporter minibus. Carole my co-host is also fluent in French and Spanish and is happy to help run this experience in another language.

Where you'll be

Our day usually starts with a short ferry crossing to the Isle of Raasay where you’ll be visiting their brand new distillery. We return by ferry to Skye where I will drive you to the world-famous Talisker distillery. We then travel to the Sleat peninsula where we will visit the beautiful Torabhaig distillery. During the day we endeavour to stop for photos where time allows. Please read carefully the tour description before proceeding to payment.
