I've been on a few distillery tours but this was the best, superbly conducted by young David. Well worth a visit. Tours every hour. We went on the 45 min tour for £7.50 which included a very warming dram!

Staying in Scotland, you have to visit a whiskey distillery. Glengoyne was the closest to our rented home, so we traveled there and was stunned by how cozy and yet authentic. Alot of white buildings with black wood, and ofcourse the distillery chimney. We took the guided tour with tasting included and off we went. The office and start place... More

They start you off with the tasting. How great his that. Billed as Scotland's more st beautiful distillery and it probably is that. Set in the beautiful countryside, we went here returning to Glasgow from Stirling Castle. Great guides. Very smooth single malt 12 year tasting, more if you want to add more. Great shop. Saw a long hairs cow... More

In beautiful surroundings the Glengoyne Distillery is truly a quaint setting. My family (10 of us ranging from a 1 year old to OAP) went for the 'wee whisky tour' which was fantastic. Staff were very knowledgeable and obviously passionate about their jobs. The distillery is very interesting, well kept and lovely to look around. The tour lasted around an... More

their single malt is worth the trip (not terribly full-bodied or peaty). We found that we had the place to ourselves and the staff seemed genuinely glad to have us visiting. The retail shop is as nicely appointed as any we saw.

What a great setting and the tour was very interesting with a very knowledgable guide with just the right amount of wit and charm and the whiskey was a treat. The shop has a great selection of gifts and all the staff are welcoming and happy to help. I would highly recommend this distillery.

The tour, which lasts about an hour commences with an introductory video and talk. But to get you in the mood a sample of the amber liquid is given to all. Then the tour proper commences with a guide who explains all the processes to make the single malt of Glengoyne. Opportunities are given for questions. I found the commentary... More

We visited the distillery this weekend and were all very impressed. The driver in our group was able to do the same tour as the rest of us, but with only 1 tasting whiskey(£7.50), while the rest of us enjoyed 4 tastings (£20). The tour and tasting lasted 1.5hours. Our guide, Edwin, was very knowledgeable and made the tour very... More
