Whisky Distillery Tour – the full details 

The Whisky Distillery Tour is led and conducted by professional photographer (and Scottish history fanatic) James Christie, a 40-year veteran of his industry. We will pick you up from Edinburgh International Airport, Waverley Train Station or any central Edinburgh location and return you to the same or another convenient location on the final day of the tour. Hotel accommodation with breakfast is included in the price as well as entry to every distillery tour. James has spent several years researching and putting this tour together, to offer you a truly unique Whisky Distillery experience. James can provide photographic equipment for you to use while on the tour (at no extra cost) if necessary. James will help you improve your photography skills, however – you do not need to be a photographer to do this tour. Appropriate lunch breaks and bio-breaks are included each day; however, lunch and dinner are not included in the price. James will ensure that you go home with unbelievable photographs of each location to ensure you have long-lasting memories of this once in a lifetime experience. Between Distillery Tours we will photograph many wonderful sights in the Grampian Region, Perth and Kinross-shire, Scottish Highlands, Speyside, Aberdeenshire, Edinburgh, and East Lothian.
