Great Tour! Did the Exclusive Tour and learned a lot. It was the first of seven distillery tours we did and it was great. The history is impressive and the whiskey is very good. Smaller then most but produces a great product and take a lot of care in teaching patrons of their art of Whiskey Making.

We very much enjoyed our tour at the Oban Distillery. There was about 10-15 in the group and the the guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Neat history and we learned a lot about how scotch is made. This was one of my husband's favorite things we did in Scotland!

I arrived before the doors opened in the rain but I was told that I could not get a tour until 11am. I was told that the group tours booked in advance and had priority. It's a disgrace that they give priority to the tour groups and don't leave any flexibility for individuals. My train left at 12 so I... More

We arrived on the off chance of getting a tour there and then, but couldn't get one until the next day when we were already gone, so we just had a look around the shop and the really nice exhibition. Since we had already been to another distillery we weren't overly disappointed not to get in (especially since we were... More

The tour was done by a very knowledgeable man. The tour is not to long. The tasting made me a fan. The Distillary is in the heart of shopping.

My husband and I visited.As my husband uses a wheelchair I pushed him up to the entrance and asked the members of staff at the door if the distillery was wheelchair accessible to which they told us no and didn't even suggest we could go into the shop.so we came out and found that the distillery at Fort William was...

This was a great tour. My 2nd distillery visit so lots of gaps in my knowledge which Rachel our tour guide filled. She was very informative and the tasting session allowed a sip from a barrel opened after 11 years rather than the full 14 years (which can also be sampled). The free gift of an oban glass was a...

We were hoping to go on a tour but they were all booked up for the day so that was disappointing so go online and book your tour ahead if it is something you want to do It sounded like there were lots of people coming in and asking for a tour but could not get in. They did have... More
