For a wee dram...

Scotland is well-known for its world-class whiskies, and with a history spanning over 1000 years, whisky has become part of Scotland's culture. Scotland's whisky is exported worldwide, but luckily, with our Distillery Discovery Pass, it’s never been easier to taste some of the best ones right where they're produced. From Harris in the north all the way down to Campbeltown, there are plenty of places to stop and sample various whiskies and even gins! Whether you're a total whisky geek looking for an authentic whisky experience, a gin lover, or an activity that doesn't involve your local pubs and bars, look no further than these distilleries.

Where to start...

We recommend that you start your journey from Edinburgh. Start your journey by flying with Loganair to Edinburgh from:

  • Isle of Man
  • England - Exeter, Southampton, Newquay
  • Wales - Cardiff
  • Norway - Bergen, Stavanger


Just to remind you, you must select at least five Loganair flights on your journey; there is no restriction on how many flights you can choose to build your itinerary.


Day 1


Fly to Edinburgh to kick off your tour.


Start your distillery trip the right way by joining a tour in Edinburgh. Three places we highly recommend visiting for whisky aficionados are; Holyrood Distillery, the Scotch Whisky Experience and Johnnie Walker – and the good thing is that they're situated right in the heart of Edinburgh! Get straight to business at Holyrood Distillery by trying out their Height of Arrows Gin Tasting Experience, where you can sample gins and make and shake your cocktail! Widen your knowledge and create whisky memories at the Scotch Whisky Experience. And lastly, visit Johnnie Walker Princes Street, where you can try exclusive cocktails, get personalised gifts or even enjoy a wee dram at their rooftop bar with stunning views of Edinburgh Castle!

Day 3


Take a flight from Edinburgh to Stornoway to sample the delights of Harris & Lewis.

In just an hour's drive or bus ride from Stornoway, you'll find the award-winning Isle of Harris Distillery, the first commercial distillery on the Isle of Harris where this island's rare and elusive spirit is captured in bottles of gin and whisky to be shared with the world. To complete your island whisky tour and warm up after the days outdoors, a visit to the 200-year-old Abhainn Dearg Distillery, also around an hour's drive from Stornoway, is a must! Abhainn Dearg Distillery opened in 2008 and is the first legal distillery in the Outer Hebrides since 1829. If you visit in the summer, you can even do a gin tour for the perfect G&T.

Day 4


You can continue your trip by flying from Stornoway to Glasgow Airport.

Glasgow has many options for day trips focusing on Scotland's national drink. Situated in West Dunbartonshire but only 10 miles from the city centre, Auchentoshan is quite a famous and much-visited distillery. There are various visitor tours with multiple levels and entry prices to suit everyone – from casual walk-ins to whisky enthusiasts! On the other hand, Clydeside Distillery is located beside the River Clyde, so it's very easily accessible. They use traditional techniques to make their Clydeside Single Malt Scotch Whisky and run tours every hour. For something more unique, they also have a special chocolate and whisky tour, which runs daily!

Day 6


Make your way to the Whisky Coast of Scotland. Fly from Glasgow to Islay with Loganair.

If you’re looking for the perfect dram, then look no further. Head to Islay to be wined and dined in the crown jewel of the Scotch Whisky scene. The island is famous for its large number of distilleries. Its distinctively peaty style of single malt will hit you with a smoky sensation. You're spoilt for choice with distilleries such as Lagavulin, Laphroaig, and Ardbeg! All these distilleries are around a 20-minute walk or a short bus ride away from each other, so it’s easy to visit and try them all during your trip to Islay. During your time in Islay, it’s hard to travel too far without bumping into a whisky distillery!

After you finish in the beautiful "Queen of the Hebrides", hop back on a Loganair flight to Glasgow before continuing onto the final stop of the Distillery Discovery.

Day 8


You can continue your trip around the Whisky Coast by flying to Campbeltown from Glasgow.

Campbeltown used to be a whisky smuggling centre long ago, and even though it no longer is, you won't be short of a dram! The beauty of Campbeltown is that the distilleries are all within walking distance, meaning you can visit them in little time. There used to be 22 distilleries in Campbeltown, but now, the three main distilleries are Glen Scotia, Glengyle and Springbank – all of which offer tours. Springbank is now the oldest independent family-owned distillery in the country. It is the only distillery in the country where 100% of the whisky-making process is carried out on one site, giving unrivalled control over the quality of the whisky.

And that's the complete tour! You can return to Glasgow to start your journey home from Glasgow or Edinburgh Airport, a short drive away.

Just so you know...

Remember to drink responsibly.

If you know you’ll consume alcohol, plan how to get to and from the distillery. And remember, you also need to be fit to fly, so ease on the drink before your flight!
