Westering Home and Whisky Galore
8 nights including 2 Gala Dinners
Scotland is renowned for some of the best whiskies in the world and this adventurous cruise takes us to some of the finest distilleries in the Northern and Western Isles, coupled with alternative visits to Britain’s most northerly cathedral, historic monuments and more.
Renowned as the maritime malt, Old Pulteney continues the spirit of the seafaring past at the most northerly distillery on the British mainland. Alternatively, visit the Wick Museum which charts the history of this Caithness town.
A steam to Kirkwall leads us to St Magnus Cathedral, known as the ‘Light in the North’, whilst whisky lovers can sample a wee dram at the Highland Park Distillery.
Scapa is an artisanal single malt, forged by the extreme elements of Orkney, or you may prefer to marvel at the highly ornate Italian Chapel and series of causeways known as The Churchill Barriers.
Rounding Cape Wrath to Lewis, a venture to the historic Callanish Standing Stones and Carloway Broch awaits, ahead of an island tour of Harris or a visit to the award-winning Harris Distillery.
The Isle of Raasay Distillery has arguably one of the best views of any distillery in Scotland, but you can decide, or perhaps explore Raasay House. On Skye, Torbhaig Distillery and Armadale Castle await, ahead of light refreshment at Britain’s remotest pub, The Old Forge at Inverie.
We conclude our adventure at Scotland’s greenest distillery, Ardnamurchan, and one of the oldest commercial distilleries at Tobermory, or you may wish to partake in some retail therapy in the colourful town.
