Festival Transport

Festival Taxi Vouchers

The Festival promotes responsible drinking and we are delighted to provide subsidised transport to help visitors get around this rural area.  

The taxi vouchers are excellent value, and can be bought at the Festival Information Hubs in Aberlour and Dufftown for just £3.50. They have a face value of £5.00 that can be used towards payment of a taxi fare with one of the many participating taxi companies listed below. Any number of vouchers can be used per trip together with cash. Each voucher is worth £5.00 towards a taxi trip but no change will be given if the value of the voucher exceeds the price of the taxi fare.

All travel arrangements should be made directly with the following taxi operators:

Getting Around

Speyside is BIG! It has to be to accommodate over 50 fantastic distilleries and one of the unique features of the Festival is traveling around events, with other Festival goers, sharing experiences and recommendations on the best drams of the day.

To make it easier we have a dedicated transport network and the option of buying the transport ticket that works best for you.  Whether you are staying for one day or for the whole festival, we have it covered.  Working in partnership with public transport providers you can use your Festival transport tickets not only on Festival buses but on certain routes throughout Speyside.

Public Transport

Stagecoach North Scotland are a Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival transport partner. Buses will be running on the 'Whisky Trail' route 36 (Elgin, Rothes, Craigellachie, Aberlour and Dufftown) and route 34 (Aviemore to Grantown-on-Spey) throughout the Festival.

Day tickets can be purchased at a special price of £3.00 by showing a Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival booking confirmation. 

Please find a link to all Stagecoach timetables here. The Whisky Trail 36 bus will run throughout the Festival, using the Saturday timetable on Sunday 3rd May and Monday 4th May 2015.
