  • 1) What can I expect for weather in November?
    First off, the weather can be quite wonderful in Scotland in November – sunny days, clear skies, and mild temperatures. Second, good weather in Scotland can never be guaranteed, no matter what time of year you visit. We are offering this tour in November for a number of reasons, but most significantly because November is outside of the high tourist season when the distilleries are inundated with visitors. In order for us to get behind-the-scenes access and special programming, we must visit at times when the distilleries are not so busy entertaining throngs of tourists. In addition, we strongly believe that Scotch Whisky is best enjoyed in the crisp weather that November tends to provide.

    2) Can I arrive before or remain after the sojourn?
    Yes! If you would like to arrive at the start location in advance or remain at the end location after the sojourn has concluded, Scholarly Sojourns can help you arrange your hotel accommodation and is often able to secure attractive rates. Please indicate these preferences to us after you have registered for a particular sojourn.

    3) How much walking will be required on this sojourn?
    All participants should be comfortable walking up to a mile at a time and capable of climbing up to three flights of stairs at a time.

    4) I am a single traveler. Can you help me find a roommate?
    Scholarly Sojourns will do all we can to match single travelers with a suitable roommate if they desire. But we cannot guarantee that roommates will be available. Therefore all single travelers should register as such and be prepared to pay the single traveler rate should a roommate not be identified.

    5) Is this sojourn appropriate for children?
    This sojourn is not appropriate for children or anyone under the age of eighteen.
