This might have been better with a tour guide with more enthusiasm and more mature in knowledge. It was rather boring and sounded like a recording. The distillery is pleasant.

We came here as part of a day tour we took from Edinburgh The tour we took was the £10 one which if you're on a budget is more than enough. You get two drams and it's a bit more personalised. It was an informative tour by a passionate, engaging and friendly guide who took the time to answer any... More

Easy to find and in a lovely scenic area - highlighted by the amount of effort the distillery put in to making the whole place look pretty, even the outdoor pipework is painted and clean. Visitor centre and shop cute and well stocked with clothing, sweets, toys and glassware. The toilets are well worth a visit! they have original Crappers!... More

Glengoyne 17 y/o (discontinued) became one of my favorites when I opened a bottle for my son’s birth. A tour of Glengoyne on my trip to Scotland was a must and did not disappoint. We did not go on the regular tour, we went on the ‘Century of Whisky Tour’. Included in this tour are a 10 yo, a 40... More

This was the second of two distilleries we toured while in Scotland. The distillery offers a variety of tours. As a group of 4 women we chose the hour and a half tour with chocolate pairings. Bill was our tour guide and he was very well informed. Having already toured a distillery we had some background knowledge. Bill brought all... More

As a non whiskey drinker I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the tour and how much I learned. Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and able to answer all of our questions. Great compliment to the Guinness Tour in Dublin! Not recommended for those with mobility challenges, they would sit out too much for the fee charged.... More

It isn't my drink, but the tour guide made our visit very interesting and was obviously a whisky enthusiast.tours... More

Glengoyne make beautiful, complex whisky. Tradition is hugely important and that shines through not only in the product but in the entire experience when visiting the distillery. Do yourself, your friends and your taste buds a massive favour and make a point of giving this gorgeous distillery a visit very soon, highly recommended.

I don't drink whiskey, it's too strong for me, so it was not my idea to go to this distillery. But I enjoyed it thoroughly. This was a top class distillery, and I did enjoy the smell of the drink, though I did not try to swallow any. Our guide had a degree in medieval art, a friend in which... More
