We did the trip on a weekend. Was really nice. You drive with a minibus for like 8 hours, but with stops every 30-60 minutes. The bus mostly stops at nice points of interest like a waterfall or the centre of scotland. The stops are like 10-15 mins mostly so you can stetch your legs and take some photos. During the drives the driver often gives interesting insights about scotland and the surroundings. Our driver, Al, was also really funny. The distilleries are all really nice. You have to pay for the entry, but often you get discounts. Also the entry is 6 to 10 pounds mostly. The accommodation was really good. Nice hosts and good rooms. The breakfast was delicious.
Al kept us entertained, educated, well fed and rested - as well as booking us on some interesting distillery tours and tastings, photo opps, rest stops and short walks. My only suggestion is only to do with the distilleries: consider options of tastings and modified tours. It only takes one distillery tour to learn the process, the distilleries can focus on their differences during a seated lesson and tasting.
Great tour. B&B in Grantown-on-Spey was very nice (Rossmor) with great breakfasts. We sat out the last distillery tour as after 2 they become a trifle monotonous. In spite of our sitting out the last tour they all were well done well and informative.
Billy our tour guide was great! Great knowledge, nice sense of humor and he always kept us into schedule!!! Excellent accommodation in the Grantown on Spey It helped a lot the fact that we were a small group
Extremely enjoyable. Ewing was our guide and he was excellent.
