Martini making class

Learn to make Bond’s most well known drink with a cocktail class at one of the UK’s many bars offering the fun experience. 007 famously orders ‘a medium dry vodka martini, lemon peel. Shaken, not stirred.’

Hire a classic car

Explore the Scottish Highlands in a classic car as Bond did towards the end of Skyfall when heading to the his childhood home in Glencoe. These roads are a delight to drive with steep inclines, sharp corners and dramatic landscapes as the backdrop.
