Stirling Castle’s long, turbulent history is associated with great figures from Scotland’s past, such as William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Mary Queen of Scots. It has seen many royal dramas and witnessed the lives and deaths of almost every Scottish monarch up to the Union of the Crowns in 1603. You will be accompanied by a guide who will lead you on a journey of discovery into the colourful characters and momentous history that have shaped the castle through the centuries.
You will then enjoy a guided tour of the oldest working distillery in Scotland and see how The Glenturret Highland Single Malt is produced, still using the traditional methods and equipment. Glenturret is the spiritual home of The Famous Grouse, Scotland’s favourite whisky, and so the tour includes a viewing of the BAFTA award-winning interactive show.
Of course, no tour is complete without a tasting and you will be invited to sample The Glenturret Highland single malt and The Famous Grouse blended whisky.
