Good chance to check out yet 1 more distillery in the Land of Single Malts! We found the tour average and informative. Unfortunately the guide should have stayed home because he was sick and coughing. I think we may have caught what he may have had. The trick is to become a follower of The Distilleries of Scotland the group... More

Unlike most distilleries that tend to be out of town, Oban is slap bang in the centre of the town and at only £8 for a standard tour offers good value too. Our guide was Deidre and she was fantastic. Knowledgable, warm and friendly and open to answering any questions. The site itself is small and tour only took about... More

Interesting tour of the distillery with a knowledgable tour guide. The guide was Spanish so it was sometimes difficult to understand what was being said but the lady really was very nice. We got samples on the tour and a free glass. If you come to Oban I would recommend this as I'm not sure there is much else to... More

I was lucky enough to get on a tour with 6 other folk at 3.15pm. The tour itself is fascinating and delivered in a clear and concise manner. Our guide, although I initially thought that she looked a bit grumpy, turned out to be quite personable and approachable - no question too silly! She also was polite when the rude... More

For a great tour of a whisky distillery this is your place! I have always liked malt whisky so it was a treat to see it in the making, left a bit tipsy mind you but did I care? Will be back next time I'm in Oban!

Did a day trip from Glasgow and this distillery in the town of Oban was an optional activity my partner and I chose to partake in. It's well worth the visit for those who are into whiskey. It's very informative and we got to sample the delicious scotch produced and bottled in-house.

A great day out. It was exceptional value and a very informative tour. Me and my partner are not whisky lovers but we really enjoyed it and I even brought a bottle.

Been on many distillery tours and they all much the same, this one good because it's just off the Main Street so easy to get to, nice old building amongst other things I bought was a Oban distillery tote bag which came in real handy and only £3.50
