Whisky Walking Wildlife Tours
Book now whisky wildlife walking and driven tours in Speyside and the Cairngorms.
Our special 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 the cairngorms mountains.
Wildlife Walking Whisky in the Hills & Moorland
2 – 4 People
£45.00 per person
Experience the living landscape of the hills and moors of Glenlivet.
Our ranger will take a select group out into the hidden valleys in Glenlivet and up onto the moorland and hills. Surrounded by an array of wonderful wildlife, we will talk about the secret history of illicit whisky making in the area, how this formed an important economic activity and is a highly influential aspect of Scotland’s history and culture.
This walk is ideal for those who like to unwind as they enjoy and explore the great outdoors at a slower pace. No jumping in and out of minibuses ticking off target species, just a leisurely walk with our expert guide who will point out wildlife along the way. Although we follow a set route there is no fixed itinerary and we will stop and look at whatever catches your eye along the way. We will also have a wee dram to toast the great people of the area who have been making whisky, both legal and illicit. We will also provide a snack half-way through to sample some local products.
This walk requires a degree of fitness and will be on rough paths so good footwear is important. It may also be cold and as it is Scotland it may rain so please also bring some warm waterproof clothing.
Wildlife and Whisky Safari
2 – 4 people
£105 per person
Bespoke outing with our Ranger who will take your select group on a full days 4×4 safari. The day is yours to do as you want. We will pick you up from where you are staying (anywhere in Speyside from Elgin to Grantown-on-Spey)
If your perfect day involves getting up close and personal with Mother Nature, come on our safari and see some of Speyside’s most beautiful landscapes that money cannot buy.
Included in this will be mid-morning coffee break, lunch, afternoon tea and a whisky tasting.
We will take you onto one of our estates where you can explore the landscape at your leisure. You can also visit a variety of different habitats and meet some of the characters that work the land. There will also be the opportunity to go to a distillery and castle.
Wildlife Walking Whisky along the River Spey
1 – 4 People
£35.00 per person
A beautiful riverside walk following paths through the woodland of Speyside. This gentle 2 hours walking tour takes in all the splendour of the Spey Valley and offers splendid views of both woodland and river alike. Species of note along the way could be red squirrel, roe deer, kingfisher, dipper, grey wagtail, maybe a fishing osprey or potentially otter. Our ranger will be with you all the way and will help you identify the flora and fauna.
We believe that after some good Scottish fresh air and exercise a wee dram tastes even better. So, you will sample a fine whisky at the end of the walk. We will also provide a snack half-way through to sample some local products.
This walk requires a degree of fitness and will be on paths and tracks so good footwear is important. It may also be cold and as it is Scotland it may rain so please also bring some warm waterproof clothing.
