Was very interesting learning the beginning of whisky and sampling 4 different whiskys not knowing what you were drinking until the end. The way we had to sample each whisky was interesting. Very enjoyable experience. Can recommend.

labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

This is a really popular wee place and showing up without a slot could prove disappointing. Email them directly and they will advise if your preferred time/date is available and book you in.
