Wildlife, walking and whisky tours.
Our special Speyside whisky tours are a chance to do something different combining a guided outdoors nature trek and whisky tasting experience. We can take you into the hills on our off road safari with dramatic views of the surrounding distilleries and Cairngorms mountains.
Our tours can also take you on a whisky-fuelled adventure through the stunning Speyside scenery along Scotland’s Malt Whisky Trail. Along the way we will encounter a wide selection of iconic wildlife. You will hear about the evolution of the whisky industry, and the importance of the trade to the local and national economy.
We can also take a select group out into the hidden valleys and up onto the moorland and hills. While surrounded by an array of wonderful wildlife, we can tell you about the secret history of illicit whisky making. As a result discover how this formed an important economic activity and is a highly influential aspect of Scotland’s history and culture.
Wild Alba Tours and Ballindalloch Castle.
We will be running daily guided nature walks from our favourite castle. Ballindalloch Castle the ‘Pearl of the North’ offers five hundred years of highland history. You can explore the large formal gardens, woodlands and riverside walks. The grounds offer a children’s playground, picnic areas, coffee and gift shop…and some amazing toilets which have won awards!
Over the summer months we are planning on running daily guided walking tours of the castle estate. We will take you along the side of the mighty River Spey and Avon to enjoy the many sights along their banks.
The various tracks and paths around the Castle estate offer the chance to see red squirrel, roe deer, greater spotted woodpecker and goldcrest. At harvest time, hay and silage making will be underway in the grass pastures close to the Castle, adding the chance to observe the operations of a working estate.
Wild Alba Tours are working with Wild Alba Glenesk to welcome you to the ‘Secrets of the Glens’.
These tours in beautiful Glen Esk are part 4×4 safari, part nature walk; part cultural tour and very unique. The tours can be a full or half day wildlife adventures. We will take you to see some of Scotland’s most iconic wildlife from Red Deer to Mountain Hare.
