This small distillery with a long tradition offers tourist tours every hour that begin with a presentation of a short introductory movie and a whiskey sample. After that you go to the actual distillery (The Stillhouse) and there you are only shown two relatively small production halls. You are asked to climb up and down some steep stairs. But actually...

I came here as part of a tour and was looking forward to the tastings. The tour was good and the guide was very knowledgeable and open to answering questions. It was worth the extra 2 quid to try both the 12 and 18 year old whiskies. My only complaint was with the man at the cashier's desk in the... More

My husband and I stopped in on a whim as we were driving by. We joined the first tour of the day, which was perfect because it consisted of only a few guests. Glengoyne is a lovely distillery and their pride is evident in the well maintained property. The only suggestion I have to make it better is to provide... More

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
