History, culture & the Scotch Whisky Experience
Scotland is a diverse destination, and for those looking for an extraordinary travel experience in the UK, there really is something for everyone. Rich history abounds in cities such as Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, while the wild, rugged Highlands beckon to be explored. But the real draw for many visitors is the world-famous Scotch Experience Edinburgh.
There are more than 120 active whisky distilleries throughout Scotland – an impressive feat for one of the smallest countries in Europe and indicative of the importance of the golden spirit. The five whisky-producing regions are Campbeltown, Highland, Islay, Lowland and Speyside. A Scotch whisky experience allows enthusiasts to learn about the history of the revered drink, which spans more than five centuries. Luxurious accommodation such as CLC Duchally Country Estate provides the opportunity to enjoy the Scotch Whisky Experience in a dedicated bar.
