DESCRIPTION & ITINERARY
Nowhere has an air of magic and mystery quite like the wilds of Scotland. Its great outdoors is inscribed with tales of the country’s storied past and supports many rare species and wild habitats . Heritage pervades through ancient landmarks, traditional music and age-old legends. And the Highlands and Islands produce some of the finest single malt whiskies in the world.
Journey to the “Queen of the Hebrides”, Islay, and experience - by land, air and sea - the elements of nature, culture and, of course, whisky, in the splendid seclusion of a sumptuous private estate not normally open to the public. Here, the naturally-pure water source, sea air and fertile lands produce whiskies for the true aficionado. Sample some rare malts as you learn the art of the distiller directly from the master distiller himself.
Connect to nature under the expert guidance of local gamekeepers and an RSPB expert; Hand dive for scallops and fish creels for crab; Immerse in Scottish culture with the sporting traditions of links golf and loch fishing; Or witness the age-old skill of milling wool and playing the bagpipes. Islay is sure to leave its mark and call you back, time and time again.
