Whisky Tours 2024 - Inspired Travel

Visited places


Glasgow is the largest Scottish city, fourth in the United Kingdom, the Scottish economic capital and, most of all, preserves some of the richest historic heritage in the country.The city is crossed by the Clyde River, around which the Roman general Gneus Julius Agricola - who played the main role during the Roman conquest of Britain - led the construction of some fortresses in 80 AD. Remains of those can still be seen in modern Glasgow. As the legend goes, hundreds of years later, the Christian missionary Saint Mungo founded the city and built a small wooden church close to Molendinar Burn, which centuries later will turn into the splendid Glasgow Cathedral.Formally a major industrial and commercial centre, modern Glasgow is a flourishing centre for arts and culture. Over the past couple of decades, it has been named City of Culture, Capital of Sport, UNESCO City of Music and City of Architecture and Design. The latter is, perhaps, partly due to the abundance of unique buildings designed by legendary Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh that dot the city.

Loch Lomond

The largest inland stretch of water in Britain, Loch Lomond is one of the most popular destinations in Scotland. The loch, which famously features in the song ‘The Bonnie Banks o’ Loch Lomond’, extends north for 24 miles from Balloch, popularly known as an access point to the Highlands. The Highland Boundary Fault traverses the loch from east to west, from Conic Hill to Ben Bowie. The geological line provides a distinctive contrast of scenery from the Lowlands in the south to the Highlands in the north. There are many places to stop for a walk or picnic with beautiful loch and mountain views. Highly recommended is a short but scenically rewarding hike to the top of Conic Hill from Balmaha, as well as the Balmaha Millennium Forest Path and Sallochy Forest Trails. The North Loch Lomond area is characterised by a vast and open sense of place and long dramatic vistas. The forests and woodlands along the loch shores contrast with the surrounding uplands to create a landscape of high scenic value. The upland hills surrounding Loch Loch Lomond, which include Ben Lomond and Ben Vorlich, provide a dramatic backdrop to the loch. They are largely undeveloped and have an open and wild sense of place.


Overlooking the still waters of Loch Fyne, Inveraray is a traditional county town of Argyll.

Established in 1745 by the 3rd Duke of Argyll, head of the powerful Clan Campbell, the town is an absolute set piece of Scottish Georgian architecture. Key buildings that are worth visiting include the neoclassical church, and Inveraray Jail and courthouse, now an award-winning museum that graphically recounts prison conditions from medieval times up until the 19th century.

A short walk north of the New Town, the neo-Gothic Inveraray Castle remains the family home of the Dukes of Argyll. The castle is set in extensive grounds which contain a number of marked walks, the most strenuous of which rises over 800 feet to the tower atop Dun Na Cuaiche from where there is a spectacular view over the castle, town and loch.

Every Thursday in the summer season from 4th May to 5th October, a handicraft market is held in Columba Hall in Frederick Crescent, next to the Co-op supermarket. Another prominent feature of Port Ellen is the new hotel on the corner of Charlotte Street and Frederick Crescent.

Port Askaig

Port Askaig, located on the shore of the Sound of Islay, is one of the smaller settlements on Islay containing no more than a few houses, a shop, petrol station, the RNLI Lifeboat station and lifeboat and Port Askaig Hotel. The Sound of Islay is the narrow sea passage between Islay and Jura, and the water flows at great speed, pushed in and out by the tides. Because of its sheltered position Port Askaig is sometimes used as an alternative ferry landing for Port Ellen when the weather is rough.
