Last time we just did the basic tour, this time we did the whisky and chocolate tour. The basic tour has been extended slightly, but the extra time to do chocolate matching was fascinating and very much enjoyed by our party (even my 7 year old daughter who tried a nibble of the chocolate). Staff were just as friendly and... More

We enjoyed the tour and learnt a lot about whisky production. The staff were also very friendly. This place is fairly close to Glasgow. Don't miss it if you are ever in the area!

Person that was giving us a tour was great, knew all about the distillery and did not bother to sell us some suspicious stories - it was down to earth and with fantastic whiskey... If you go by bus on Su - keep in mind you'll be waiting for 45 min to come back.

As a non-whisky consumer, I was uncertain about doing whether to take a tour of the Glengoyle Distillery. AM I EVER GLAD I DID! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. To my surprise, I was given a taste of the 10 year old Whisky as the tour began. I never anticipated that I would have the opportunity to... More

Attended at this distillery with a few mates and it was great. Cost us £8 each (I think) for the tour. Had a dram of 12 year old whisky to start the tour and then short video. The tour guide was well dressed, spoken and entertaining. I would recommend this establishment even if you are not a whisky drinker.

As a whisky lover, I was thrilled to go on a tour and tasting in a real distillery. Glengoyne is very charming, and has much to offer to whisky lovers. I took a tour that included two tastings - their 12 year old and their 18 year old (which was to die for). The guide was very nice and knowledgeable,... More

I got a lot of whisky knowledge there. The guide was great - he explained every detail concerning whisky production in quite an entertaining way. We had an occasion to taste Glengoyne whisky too. It was great so we bought a few bottles in a souvenir shop.

Lovely tour of an old distillery presented in a way that showed all the processes even tho they are not all undertaken on this site anymore. Various levels of tour and tastes!

Who doesn't love scotch? Seriously, this is a nice distillery in a beautiful setting. No way to go wrong on the tour. Friendly staff and the restroom had Thomas Crapper toilets!

We had attempted to visit the Deanston distillery but everyone else had the same idea so it was fully booked. We're glad that we were turned away from Deanston as Glengoyne is such a lovely place. The staff are knowledgeable and the distillery itself is much prettier than Deanston. Would definitely recommend a visit if the rain puts you off... More
