Our mission is to take you off the beaten path where you can sample delicious food and drinks, provided by local businesses and highlight the rich cultural history we have in the East Coast of Scotland.
On our unique food and drink coach tour, you don't have to trudge the streets walking and standing in the rain going from door to door, with us you will enjoy being taken by luxury coach to sample local food and drink at while leaning about the history of the Scotland during your journey.

Forth Bridges
After leaving Edinburgh our first stop will be a photo opportunity of these three magnificent bridges, which connect Edinburgh to Fife where we will be spending the day at different stops to enjoy the local produce.

Cheese House Farm
These local farmers and family run business have been in the East Neuk of Fife since the 1930s and started to make cheese ten years ago. We will enjoy samples of award-winning cheeses and a glass of wine or tea/coffee (included in the cost of your tour) . As well as a short cheese and farming talk; we can watch the cheesemaking from the Viewing Gallery. On a clear day, you can sit outside the coffee shop on the balcony and enjoy the panoramic views down across the fields towards the Firth of Forth and beyond.

Brewery Visit
Only a short distance until our next stop at Ovenstone Brewery, a brand-new microbrewery in the East Neuk of Fife. Instead of a polished tour you might get elsewhere, here you will meet the team who actually make the craft beer and of course you will have the opportunity to enjoy tasting an up and coming brand, that you can tell your friends and family you were amongst the first to try (tasting included in cost of your tour)

Before our next stop, we enjoy a scenic tour of St Andrews with a photo stop, down by the golf course.

Just on the skirts of the hub of St Andrews, is the Balgove Larder. This Farm House has become a hub for top-notch, locally reared, grown, stalked, caught, handmade, and prepared foods.
Scotland is home to some of the world’s best beef, game, seafood and produce. Instead of seeing this amazing food shipped off to the far corners of the globe, Balgrove prefer to keep it right here on home turf. Everything they raise and grow on the farm travels just a few miles, at most, and ends up right here in the shop.
Here we will enjoy a 30-minute tour plus a tasting board in the Steak Barn or Café (depending as the barn has seasonal opening)

Our final stop of the day is at Kings Barns Distillery. Discover how the founder of the Kingsbarns Distillery was inspired to build a distillery while working as a golf caddie at the neighbouring Kingsbarns Golf Links. Here you have the option of a Whisky OR Gin tour and tasting (included in the price)

After our full day of sampling and learning about local produce in the East of Scotland we will enjoy a scenic journey back to Edinburgh.
