Only in Scotland


(Scottish folk music playing) – Hello, welcome to
Scotland guys, I’m Craig. – Hi, I’m Allison. – Hi there, I’m Stuart. – [Allison] I am so excited
to be here with my husband, returning to his home country. to experience the ultimate
Scottish adventure. – [Stuart] Well, thank you
for the warm Scottish welcome. (upbeat music) – [Stuart] What better
way to start our journey than to one of Scotland’s
most famous distilleries, including tasting one
of my favorite drinks, whiskey. – If you watch a glass of
whiskey really closely, when you add some water, you see all those oils
start to break apart. Sláinte. Cheers. – [Allison] Cheers. – [Bartender] Okay guys, so there’s a little treat
to finish off the day. We thought we’d put a little whiskey and chocolate pairing together. You’ll see in front of you are three different
chocolates and whiskeys. We’re gonna feature the Aberfeldy 12, the Dewar’s 12 and the Dewar’s 18. So a real range of what we offer here. – [Allison] Very unique. – [Stuart] Well, you
can’t come to Scotland without visiting a castle. – [Allison] This is a
picture perfect backdrop. Let’s tick off the bucket list with some farm fresh eggs for breakfast. – C’mon girls. Cheers for the hug, hen. – [Ballintaggart Farm Employee]
Our whole story is built on showcasing the outstanding
Scottish natural larder. In lots of our menus you’ll see we forage from the hillsides, from the rivers. So from a sustainability point of view, we’re really trying to have, to reduce our waste, and keep our food miles low, and we think that makes the food taste additionally delicious. It does get harder the further up you get. – Perfect. – And then we’re gonna
make some rye crackers, and also some butternut squash hummus. And so you’re in for a little treat. – Fantastic. – [Tour Guide] A lot of
places that we go in canoes, you really wouldn’t get there very easily. – [Tour Guide] Yeah you can’t
get to some of the places, like even with walking, like on the side of Loch Tay. You can’t get there by foot. – [Stuart] Right. – So you have to get there by boat, and it just makes it
really really special. You can get remote really quickly as well. – How do you do a round trip in the water? – There’s not many circular
rivers in Scotland so, (laughter) you have to figure that out. Um, no we just run shuttles. So you can jump in a van at the bottom. You feel benefits to spend a time outside. Especially today’s kind of, you know, 100 mile an hour living that people do. It really is a great chance to disconnect and just really find out
more about yourself right? To kind of, you know,
soak up the atmosphere and to really see some beautiful scenery through your own eyes for once. Not an Instagram page. (laughter) So that for me is really important. – [Allison] Well what are you
waiting for? Jump right in! (Splash) The best time to visit
Scotland is right now.
