    Hi Connor! Unfortunately, there are very few Lowland Scotch Distilleries. I know there are several tours you can take out of Edinburgh up towards the Highlands, but these are full day trips. Glenkinchie Distillery still runs tours out of Edinburgh City center, but I did not partake. What I did, was take part in The Scotch Whisky Experience, which is an informative tour/ride which takes you through the history, techniques, and uniqueness, of the different areas in Scotland that produce Scotch. I also enjoyed meandering through some Scotch/liquor stores on Princes St, as well as The Royal Mile. Every place I visited had wonderful people on staff that knew their Scotch well. My favorite was Royal Mile Whiskies, where my lovely wife procured a few Birthday bottles for me. Hope that helps! Cheers!

      Yes it does. I was unaware that Edinburgh wasn't the hottest spot for Scotch, so thank you! These spots that you mention just might do the trick anyway. · (0 likelikes)

    Definitely make sure to check out the The Scotch Whisky Experience right on the royal mile. The "ride" in a whisky barrel that explains the process is short and neat. Afterwards, you get an short explanation of the 5 scotch areas and how they each have a unique taste-complete with sipping samples. Then you can head to their bar and have a few more tastes. There were a couple of whisky stores/shops that had an excellent selection to try from. Our favorite was Royal Mile Whiskies-great selection and completely knowledgeable staff! We brought home several bottles from here.
