Whisky buffs from around the world dream of making the pilgrimage to Scotland for its famous aqua vitae. The name whisky comes from the Gaelic uisge beatha, which means ‘water of life’. There’s no better place to explore the wonderful world of whiskies than in the home of some of its biggest names, all on the West Coast Whisky Trails. Why not pick up a motorhome rental Scotland and travel the stunning landscape that gives Scotch whisky its unique taste.
The West Coast Whisky Trail of Scotland combines incredible scenery, fine dining and visitor attractions with the best single malt whisky in the world for a memorable holiday in a motorhome rental Scotland. On our itinerary in a motorhome rental, the voyage starts from Glasgow, west on the A83 over the Rest and Be Thankful, along scenic Loch Fyne to Tarbert in Kintyre and south to Campbeltown. Here, Glen Scotia, Springbank and Glengyle distilleries offer guided tours topped off by a fine dram. From Tarbert, take the B8001 to the ferry to the Isle of Arran, which is also the beginning of the Islay and West Coast Whisky Trail. The Isle of Arran Distillery is one of Scotland’s newest, home to Arran Malt and perfect to take your motorhome rental Scotland.
A ferry ride takes the valiant whisky explorer in a motorhome rental Scotland to beautiful Islay, celebrated for its smoky single malts. This charming island boasts eight distilleries, all of which proffer guided tours. Visitors will see traditional whisky production, from the malting of the barley to the firing of peat-fired kilns and stocking of warehouses.
Another ferry arrives at the next stop on the West Coast Whisky Trail, Oban Distillery, where friendly tour guides take visitors behind the scenes, finishing with a dram of 14-year old malt. If you are up for one more crossing in your motorhome rental Scotland, The Isle of Mull in Scotland is the home of Tobermory Distillery, famous for the sweet and peaty malt of Ledaig and 10-year-old Tobermory. For those who would prefer a short drive up to the mountains, Ben Nevis Distillery in Fort William is one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland. Sláinte!
