The Speyside Malt Whisky Trail Experience

Experience the Best of the Speyside Regions Distilleries!

Scotland

  • Nights 4
  • Days 5
  • Distillery Tastings 3
  • Season Year Round

If you are a lover of Scotch, then this experience is for you!

Not unlike the popular wine regions of Napa or Sonoma in California or the Douro Valley in Portugal, Scotland has its own defined Whisky regions.

In fact, there are six regions, Highlands, Speyside, Lowlands, Campbeltown, Islay, and Islands, each of which is unique to the other. If you are a connoisseur then you will be familiar with the difference, each defined by the distilling process’s most important ingredient, the water!  It’s no doubt that it was once referred to in the Gaelic tongue as uisge beatha, and in English, the water of life.

That said, we curated an experience in the middle of the Speyside Region where you can visit some of the more popular distilleries while staying in a proper Scottish style hotel.

Before You Travel

  • A quality rain suit, pants and jacket is a MUST! Zero Restriction and FootJoy are quality brands. If you do not own such apparel, it is expensive and note, you get what you pay for. So purchase wisely as you’ll be thankful you have it if you get a good lashing!
  • Rain gloves – a must when playing in the rain. They come in pairs and for good reason. A wet hand on a wet grip will only result in tears as your ball, and maybe your club too, will undoubtedly end up in the fescue.
  • A good ski hat – yes, not what you typically think of for golf but because most courses are on the ocean, the water temps are still only in the upper 50’s to 60 degrees. Combine these factors with some wind blowing onshore and then throw in some rain and it is a recipe for being miserable. A nice warm hat that can cover your ears could be your best friend.
  • A proper golf umbrella – a must as normal summer weather means intermittent showers that come and go throughout a 4 hour round. You can generally see what is coming so instead of changing in and out of rain gear, you can use a good sturdy wind-resistant umbrella to shelter you until the shower passes.

Now, what about sunshine? Yes, they do have it in Scotland and when it comes out especially in the late spring and summer months, it can be quite warm to hot. Therefore, a few pair of golf shorts are in order. Golfers have been known to wear shorts under their rain pants simply because the extremes from shower to sunshine can be very dramatic – so this is sometimes the best approach.

All in all, these are the best tips to best prepare you for what we hope is a memorable experience golfing in Scotland.
