There are few drives as beautiful as in Scotland and Ireland. In Scotland, the roads hug the rivers and lakes flowing in the valleys making it a beautiful journey. In Ireland, it gets wilder as the waves of the Atlantic hit the rugged shoreline, which when we witness from our drive would take our breath away.
The Wild Atlantic Way as it is known is one of the most scenic drives in Europe. This tour also traces the path of some of the Scottish and Irish whiskeys through this journey.
