Wild History and Whisky Tours are fascinating and unique – we take a holistic look at the history and environment that make up the beautiful regions of Aberdeenshire, Royal Deeside and Speyside, whilst enjoying some excellent tours and tastings at selected whisky distilleries that incorporate the local ‘tale’.

We concentrate on places slightly off the beaten track that encapsulate the local story, engaging with local people and businesses, providing insightful and unique visitor experiences. You will come away with an understanding of how the landscape and its communities have been fashioned by history, and, for the Speyside tours, the place of whisky in this story.

Tours are private and numbers are kept low to provide a more personal experience. Up to six people can be transported in the very comfortable Volvo XC90 (access to the third row of seats is not suitable for passengers with limited mobility).

Covid statement Tours of two people using the 3rd row of seats only are available if social distancing is a requirement. Our new one-day tour for 2020, Deeside’s da Vinci Code, visits outside attractions only and we can amend our other tours to include outside venues only. The interior of the vehicle will be disinfected between tours.

What we offer

Day tours

Our Secret Life of Glenlivet and Castles and Casks offer a unique combination of history and whisky in Speyside, while our Deeside based Forts to Fairies and the new and intriguing Deeside’s Da Vinci Code are ideal for those wanting to immerse themselves in the history.

Two and three day tours

As well as our two-day Mountains to Sea tour, we have the new and exciting Clan Gordon Tour, with exclusive access to the House of Gordon seat in Deeside. Our three-day Whisky and Wool tour adds another historic, local product of quality to the mix.

For further details of the tours please go to the One, Two and Three Day Tour menus. Full itineraries can be provided on request.

Pick-ups for the Speyside based day tours can be made in both Deeside and Speyside, while pick-ups for the Deeside day tours are made in Deeside only. The Mountains to Sea and Whisky and Wool tours are Speyside pick ups only, and the Clan Gordon tour pick up is Deeside only. We can pick up from your accommodation – please contact us to discuss your requirements

We can tailor the tours to suit your interests – maybe less whisky and more history, or for the whisky connoisseurs amongst you, a full-on whisky tour to more than one distillery? Contact us to discuss what you have in mind:
