Distillery Visits

This is the ultimate Coastal Scotland Tour! We work our way from the southwest corner in Campbeltown and head all the way up the West Coast to the Orkney Islands. Along the way, we visit some of the best distilleries in Scotland.

Glen Scotia, Springbank, Oban, Tobermory, Talisker, Old Pulteney, Scapa and Highland Park are just some of the stops along the way.

Spectacular Beauty

Not only are we visiting some of the best distilleries in Scotland, but these distilleries will take us to some of the most beautiful parts of Scotland. This will be a beautiful trip along the coast, stopping to take in the majestic beauty found on these remote islands and locations.

We include a nice balance of whisky, history and culture on our Scotland journeys. And some great, fresh seafood along the way!!

Your Guide

Charles Grabitzky has been taking groups to Scotland, Ireland, Japan and Kentucky on whisky tours for many years.  “This tour has it all. Great whisky, incredible scenery and fresh food. It’s hard to beat this itinerary. And you don’t have to totally be into whisky to enjoy this adventure.”

    Our @rascalandthorn Water of Life Collaboration Tour continued to Glenglassaugh Distillery. Such great hospitality by Stewart Buchanan, Global Brand Ambassador. A visit to the Sandend Beach, full Distillery Tour and a fabulous tasting and feast to end with. What a great afternoon! The Sandend tasted like the beach!

    We started our 2nd @rascalandthorn Collaboration Whisky Tour with @wateroflifefilm with a visitor to Tormore Distillery in the Speyside Region of Scotland. It was really an incredible visit to the distillery with one of their Senior Distillery Managers, George, who took us through everything in detail. Then off to barrel making, hands on, and a trip to the water source for more drams! And to sample from the spring. A great way to kick off our 2nd Tour with @weedrambigman.
