Take the tour and have some nips of 10 and 18 year old single malt spirits. One of the best of the highlands. Tour starts with a film and is take over by friendly hosts. Walk along the full process of making the whisky and end in the giftshop for some briljant items to take home.

Lovely Whiskey, and a good tour - you get one or two more bits of knowledge than other distilleries (that I've been to anyway).

On the tour I got some interesting information about the Whisky distilling tradition which you perhaps may not get without visiting a distillery on the spot.

We were excited to do a whiskey tour--but it turned out a just ok experience.The tour was unexcitingly matter of fact and short and their shop was rather overpriced.

Beautiful trip up to the distillery, nice surroundings and view. The old distillery is very impressive and the tour was interesting. Even for those who didn't like whiskey it was well worth the trip!

I love this distillery and whenever in the area will make a visit ! The tour is informative and the setting perfect on the edge of the hills. The malt at the end of the tour is divine and I cannot resist the Tea-pot dram ! The staff are so friendly and make you feel like a long-lost friend. If... More

If you like whisky then this is a very worthwhile place to stop. Make sure you have someone with you that doesn't though, that way you can enjoy everything that Glengoyne has to offer and they can drive you on afterwards. I did the tasting tour which lasted about 1.5hrs and included the normal tour plus a few extra drams... More

Our trip to the Glengoyne Distillery was an optional tour on a coaching holiday that I nearly didn't do as I dont usually enjoy a drink of whisky, and so couldn't really see the point in going around a whisky distillery......but how wrong I was. However with the threat of awful weather and wondering what to do on a rainy... More

If you're in Glasgow with half a day to spare then do yourself a favour and take a trip to this Scottish owned, delightful distillery. There's a brilliant guided tour followed by the opportunity to mix your own blend of whiskey and take it home. It's an educational experience not to miss!
