Whisky Tours and Trails

Still not sure where to start your whisky journey? Then check out some of our recommendations. Admittedly, we have a slight west coast bias, so we our local tour guides; Dramble Tours and..... offer guided tours of Glasgow's finest whisky bars.


West Coast Whisky Trail

We would then recommend Scotland’s 'The Whisky Coast’ which will take you from Isle of Arran, to Campbeltown, Islay, up to Oban, the Gateway to Isle of Mull, then north to Talisker on the Isle of Skye.

The Whisky Coast will introduce visitors to famous whisky from 16 distilleries, and world class scenery and experiences. Further details can be found with Explore Argyll.

Calmac's West Coast Whisky Pass is a great thing for any whisky lover to have, or anybody wanting to explore Scotland's stunning west coast.

CalMac have hooked up with a range of impeccable whisky partners and the range of discounts and exclusive promotions across: distilleries, award winning bars, golf courses, tour providers, hotels, shops and much more by accessing a range of exclusive promotions and discounts.

You are promised a dram good time with the West Coast Whisky Pass, as whisky lovers can now make many more visits to Scotland's island distilleries, including our favourite - Laphroaig.


Every year thousands of Laphroaig devotees visit us the distillery to drink in the atmosphere, learn a few of our secrets and share a dram or two afterwards. However, whilst the isolation of Islay has enabled them to maintain the ancient traditions of whisky making, they have recognised that for many of you the journey may be impossible - at least for now.

To encourage you to make the journey, Laphroaig have created a virtual distillery tour, to explain every aspect of the making of Laphroaig, including access all areas that are normally not a feature of the standard distillery tour, for example, visiting peat beds. You can either watch the entire tour from start to finish here, or see the individual sections as separate videos. Your tour will last approximately 200 years! The length of time that our ancient distillery has been used for distilling legally and illegally!
