“It’s an absolute pleasure to be collaborating with James Thomson and his iconic Edinburgh venues, as well as some of Scotland’s finest producers, as we launch this new food and drink experience in 2022. Our family has long been transporting guests around Scotland, showcasing the very best local food, drink and warm hospitality the country has to offer. Now, it’s a formal partnership which both visitors can enjoy as we edge towards the spring and summer months."
“The benefit of choosing an independent tour provider like Sleigh’s, or a venue like Prestonfield and The Witchery, is that you get a personal, bespoke experience every time, and unparalleled local knowledge and insight.”
