A Scotch Odyssey – with a Chauffeur

Whether this is just the suggestibility of memory, or whether I’m correct in my suspicion that Rabbie’s buses were just some of the many vehicles to overtake me last year, the Scottish luxury tour company has announced new route packages for 2011.


The Whisky Coast Explorer Tour promises eight days of superlative scenery and delightful dramming. Representing the former are Islay, Mull, Iona, and Skye, and the doors of Bruichladdich, Kilchoman and Oban are open for you to facilitate the latter. Tours depart from Glasgow and Edinburgh from April 29, costing between £448-478 per person.

Take in still more of stunning Scotland with the Islay, Edinburgh and Speyside Tour, encompassing the West Coast, Edinburgh and such worthy Speyside visits as the outstanding Glenlivet (7/10 *s on my scale) and Benromach. Leaving Glasgow and Edinburgh on Fridays from the April 29th, costing between £328-348.

These prices are exclusive of accommodation, with your nightly stays very much dependent on that which you wish to spend; a tailor-made approach. Both of these luxury coach tours provide the opportunity to stay at the Bowmore Cottages, which are just charming.

Visit www.rabbies.com or call 0131 226 3133 for more information.

If there is any advice you would like about a forthcoming adventure into the whisky-drizzled landscapes of Scotland, whether it be a route, an accommodation recommendation or anything whisky-related, just drop me an email at scotchodysseyblog@hotmail.co.uk .
