Just north of the border in the picturesque town of Moffat we shall rendezvous at the Auchen castle Hotel for a Champagne welcome reception.

The tour commences in earnest as we head north towards our evening destination of Andy Murray’s imposing hotel in Kinbuch. Lunch will be taken in South Queensferry against the backdrop of the Forth Bridge. As we near the Cromlix hotel, we have the option to spend an hour or so at the Tullibardine distillery near Blackford (just south of Gleneagles). Dinner this evening is in the Albert Roux restaurant at the hotel.

We head back up towards Glasgow heading north then east to our ‘Finale’ night at the fabulous Cameron House hotel on Loch Lomond. We follow the ‘lochside’ road for Inveraray, where we will stop for lunch. At Loch Lomond we are spoilt for choice as to which distillery to visit, names include Dewars, Bells, Dalwinnie, Glengoyne and Loch Lomond.
