  • Whisky Explorer Escorted Journey


    A grand tour from Edinburgh to Speyside, to Oban to Islay - somewhere en route, you will discover your favourite whisky!

McKinlay Kidd Escorted Journeys are a new way to see Scotland differently on one of our small group tours.  We’re already experienced at planning tours for groups – whether for families, friends or colleagues. Combining an expert guide, off-the-beaten-track accommodation and unique experiences, they've proved very popular, which is why we’re offering escorted journeys as a holiday option.

Our range of escorted small group tours in Scotland  include two whisky options - our Whisky Explorer Escorted Journey is a grand tour of Scotland's key whisky regions, including Speyside, Highland and Islay, while West Coast Whisky focuses on Campbeltown, Islay, Jura and Oban.

McKinlay Kidd's small group tours have been carefully-designed according to our principles of hand-crafted, tailormade holidays in Scotland.  All the accommodation and experiences have been personally tried and tested by members of our team.  We only work with knowledgeable and passionate guides, who enjoy sharing Scotland's hidden gems as much as we do.  If there is a particular distillery you would like to visit on a whisky tour, or a certain place along the way, do let us know at time of booking, and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Our small group tours take place in April, May, June, July, September and October - see the individual web pages for full details of dates and prices.
