We leave Scotland's capital behind at 8. 30am and cross the Forth Road Bridge on our way through Macbeth country to Dunkeld with its mighty Cathedral. We stop at a Highland whisky distillery where you can discover how Scotland’s favourite tipple, the ‘Water of Life’ is made. For those brave enough, there’s even the opportunity to taste a wee dram.
