If you're eager to appraise the liquid landscape of Scotland within the historic environs of Edinburgh, our rooftop beckons. Led by one of our whisky specialists in our Explorers' Bothy bar, this sensory experience offers a curated exploration of Scottish whiskies, each matured a minimum of 12 years. You'll taste beautiful single malts from Islay, the Highlands, and Speyside, before savouring a rare, Johnnie Walker Princes Street-exclusive Lowland grain whisky.

Your flavour adventure culminates in a revelatory experience of Johnnie Walker Black Label, representing all of Scotland in a single dram.

Artwork by Scott Naismith

Situated on the rooftop of Johnnie Walker Princes Street, Explorers’ Bothy also features artwork from Scottish landscape artist, Scott Naismith. Scott has been walking with us for some time now and his stunning artwork also features in our Four Corners of Scotland distilleries. We caught up with Scott to chat about his process and what makes a ‘finished’ painting.
