The Wine Academy of Utah, lead by Jim Santangelo, is taking a week-long trip throughout Scotland exploring the best parts of the city of Edinburgh and the Highlands of Whisky country September 1–8, 2018 and has a few spots remaining.
This is eight-day, seven-night guided trip includes lodging, transportation, tours, distilleries, hiking and much more. Santangelo will guide you to world-renowned distilleries, historical sites and introduce you to local characters along the way.
The trip is $3,450 all-inclusive with the exception of airfare. This includes housing, transportation, distillery and museum tours and dozens of meals.
Begin your adventure in Edinburgh, Scotland with two full days on foot touring around the entire city from the historic Royal Mile to the modern Prince Street, enjoying museums, pubs, high tea, distilleries and plenty of food.
Then, travel to St. Andrews, the birthplace of golf, edging your way up the countryside touring castles teetering on the cliff’s edge, finally resting your head in the Speyside, the heart of whisky country.
Once in Speyside, discover where two-thirds of Scotland’s whisky is distilled. Tour the greatest distilleries and discover the unknown. You’ll have the chance to taste whisky dating back to your birth year, visit a cooperage learning the secrets of the whisky barrel and travel to towns off-the-beaten path.
The tail-end of the trip is spent in Inverness, looking for Nessy in Lochness, seeing critical battle sites in Scotland’s history of a nation and walking through ancient burial grounds that’ll have you reaching for a dram in no time!
Returning to Edinburgh, celebrate the trip with a final whisky dinner and celebration, sharing stories of the past week.
