Provides great value for the gold medal tour as you get the tour of the distillery from grain to glass plus you get to sample four whiskies – 12 year old, 18 year old, 21 year old and Cash strength – all for £22.50. Remember they are 35ml measures North of the Border (25ml in the south) so make sure... More

We were in Scotland visiting friends over a weekend. They took us to the local distillery only a couple of miles away. It turned out to be an excellent choice. Not only is it very picturesque, but we were able to have a full tour accompanied by a friendly knowledgeable guide, but were able to sample many superb whiskeys. Highly... More

A very well done tour of the distillery that explained the process clearly. Well worth the £8.50 including a taste of the 10 yo.

It's a 25 minute drive from the centre of Glasgow - but sits on the boundary between the Scottish Highlands & Lowlands, surrounded by spectacular scenery. Great distillery tour with some very nice whisky along the way! Fantastic, well stocked shop and nice, clean toilets.

This is a truly wonderful place to visit. The staff took us from reception to the room where the tour began under their own umbrellas as it was chucking it down! A dram of 12 year glengoyne to kick things off. Then you are taken on a full tour of the distilling process from start to finish, which is very... More

Continuing a whisky pilgrimage, I booked in and did the Master Class at Glengoyne. What a brilliant experience. Fortunately to be the only participant, the 5 1/2 hours flew by as my whisky knowledge grew. Alistair provide a unique experience in getting to the heart of whisky production. The experience was capped by a marrying of my own mixture of... More

This is the furthest south of all the Highland distilleries and is a fascinating place to visit. I may be a little biased as this is one of my favourite malts but the tour is genuinely informative and fun. The Whisky is exceptional and there is a souvenir shop on site that sells various cask aged varieties. You will not... More

I didn't expect to enjoy the experience so much as I don't drink whiskey but it was a very interesting and entertaining way to spend an afternoon. Who knew whiskey was so interesting. Well worthwhile. We had the tour with just the one glass of whiskey which was sufficient for us. The gift shop is small but also very good.

We stopped in here during our journey on the West Highland Way, it was a great diversion. We took the basic tasting tour at £7.50 which lasted about 45 mins, it was a fascinating insight into the workings of the distillery from a very enthusiastic guide who had a wealth of knowledge.
