Take the drive to the edge of Glasgow and see everything you ever wanted to know about whisky, first hand. The trip itself is part of the magic, I truly consider this one of the finest parts of Scotland. The staff are wonderfully friendly and informative and the acces provided to the distillery is impressive. Small in scale but with... More

Glengoyne straddles the road that is the informal boundary between Highlands and Lowlands. Because distillation occurs on the northern side of the road, the distillery is said to belong to the Highlands district. Another marketing differentiation of this distillery is the claim of being "the most beautiful distillery in Scotland"; it does provide for some nice scenery. But most importantly,... More

Really interesting tour, not great for the disabled due to the steps needing to be climbed to see the process and distillery. Don't pay for a 4 whiskey tasting session if you're driving. Staff were all friendly and some Photo opportunities in the bonded warehouse but not in the distillery itself. Take a bottle of water to sip on your... More

Wow - so much fun!! We came mainly because my fiancé is a whiskey fan and....we're in Scotland so it's silly not to! I, not being a whiskey lover didn't expect much, but ended up having an incredible time (other than dealing with the disgusted look of my partner's face when I had to add water to my dram ;)....

Informative guide (Lorna) makes one appreciate the difference between blended and single malt whiskey, as well as the unhurried process of distillation. Just smelling the vapors wafting from the vat where fermentation takes place makes the trip from Edinburgh worthwhile. Tasting of the 12- & 18-yr old single malt included in the £ 9.50 tour fee.

Friendly staff, idyllic location. 10 pound tasting was well worth it and bought a bottle of 18yo gleng one and a scarf from their well appointed shop.

Travelled a long from Edinburg. Enroute was Wonderful and picturesque. Amazing experience for all ages. Staff explained the nuisances of traditional malt whisky making. Both 12 and 18 years were smooth. Great Value for money.

Tucked away in a nice, picturesque valley, just south of Loch Lomond, this distillery is worth stopping off at. The place has a nice, family-run feel and the tours were informative and fun. It's not a large site, but the tour shows their immense pride in their product - whether you're connoisseur or not, you can't help but admire the... More
