Rabbie’s Small Group Tours has introduced a number of culinary tours for this year, some of which can be taken during Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight, which takes place from September 6-21.

Highlighting local food and drink has long been integral to the operator, but a recent increased demand for sampling homegrown produce has prompted the company to introduce a wider range of options for culinary adventurers.

New for this year is the Isle of Arran Adventure– a three-day tour to explore the west coast of Scotland where visitors have the chance to visit one of the last remaining independent distilleries in Scotland, and stop at the Arran Cheese Shop for a taste of the local cheese. Departing on September 28, prices start from £149 per person for transport and a guide. Accommodation and meals are extra to suit individual budget requirements.

Also new this year is the Magical Mull, Isle of Iona & West Highlands four-day tour on which visitors are given the opportunity to sample a local tipple at the Tobermory Whisky Distillery. Prices start from £199, which includes transport and the services of a guide. Accommodation and meals are extra and the tour departs on Thursdays throughout September.
