One of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and a beautiful setting. The tour is excellent and really informative, you really get a feel for the history of this distillery when you are there, and of course a wee dram to taste, nice souvenir shop to finish off your visit

My mate Alan and I visited, Denise was our wonderful guide. She answered all our questions and politely listened to all our pointless anecdotes with great charm. The tour was informative, the site much larger than it appears from the road. There is a small charge but this is offset by the generous dram at the end, served in a... More

Visited Fettercairn distilery on our way from Stonehaven to Stirling. It is located just in the outskirts of the picturesque village of Fettercairn and both the village and the distillery are well worth short a visit when you are driving by.

Had a quick tour on my way back to Shetland. My guide "Katy" (hope I got that right) took me round and explained clearly what makes Fettercairn different and unique. Being experienced in whisky tours, I sometimes find the "customer" tours to be too simple, but once I'd explained I'd been round many distilleries she was able to change the... More

Hubby is a fan of Fettercairn whisky and had wanted to visit the distillery for some time. We weren't disappointed, we got a tour just the 2 of us and it was very enjoyable and informative even to me as I don't drink whisky and didn't really have an interest in it! Denise took us round and certainly knew her... More

We popped into this delightful little distillery and were pleasantly surprised. Somewhat off the traditional whiskey trail, I was a little sceptical about what we'd find, but was proven wrong by the excellent whiskey we found. The extremely friendly staff were more than happy for us to try their two standard malts, Fasque and Fior, the latter being far superior.... More

Stopped here for a tour to this quite old-looking distillery from the outside. We were served by a kind lady, who showed us around, and saw all their areas plus viewing area for the warehouse (sigh). Although the commentary is good enough for beginners, for those more interested in whisky, well, nothing special. Also felt that the tour was too... More
