After lunch here, or in nearby Aberlour, you visit Glenfiddich Distillery, home to the world’s most popular single malt. Tradition and passion have shaped the distinctive flavours of this Speyside favourite since the Grant family first started distilling in this area more than 130 years ago. Retun to Grantown on Spey for the evening.
 
Day 3: In the morning visit Glenlivet, which is both a distillery and a beautiful glen with serene walks and wonderful wildlife. Enjoy the majesty of Royal Deeside, pass by Balmoral Castle and stop in the village of Braemar in the heart of the National Park.
From here the route south passes over Scotland’s highest mountain pass, through Perthshire and finally back to Edinburgh.
