In May, Scotland celebrates whisky month with a range of themed events and experiences across the Highlands and Islands, including the Spirit of Speyside Festival, which you can read more about here. Get your clients in on the spirited festivities with one of Wilderness Scotland’s active itineraries combining whisky tastings with a walking or sea kayaking trip. On the Self Guided – Speyside Way, guests hike from the sea to the summit in Cairngorms National Park in Scotland’s most famous whisky-making region, Speyside. Rates for this self-guided walking holiday start at $892.50 pp dbl, and include 7-night accommodation in bed and breakfasts, small hotels and inns along the route, route notes—including a map and full directions to guests’ accommodation—and the services of the Wilderness Scotland Team prior to and during guests’ trip.

For those who prefer a more adventurous experience, Wilderness Scotland offers a Scottish Sea Kayak Trail South – The Whisky Coast itinerary that paddles the southern section of the Scottish Sea Kayak Trail South with the opportunity for guests to sample some fine local whiskeys and take a tour of the Oban Distillery, in addition to sea kayaking.
