ISC Trip to Pitlochry Distillery & the Hermitage Walk

Sat 14 October 2017 07:45-18:00

International Student Centre Edinburgh, Pleasance West


Favour a bottle of free rum (spoiler alert: you will only get it if you're over 18)? Join us for one of the musts when you are living in Scotland; have a tour and a taste of one of the country's famous whiskey distilleries!


We will be visiting Blair Atholl distillery, which was founded all the way back in 1798, and distils single malt whiskey. Pitlochry is a small Victorian town approximately 70 miles north of Edinburgh. The town is a popular tourist resort, and due to its location surrounded by mountains, it is known as a centre for hillwalking.


Before that, our first stop will be Dunkeld, a 6.5km scenic walk through the beautiful wooded glen of the Hermitage, complete with picturesque follies and attractive waterfalls. The route then continues to visit the dramatic Rumbling Bridge before a return through the more open countryside.
