With 3 of my pals, using Itson vouchers, we all thought this was the best tour we had done. It started with an introduction from Bill, our guide for the visit, a short informative video and, guess what, a wee dram taster. It was then onto the tour and Bill was so knowledgeable and presented in a very intersting talk,... More

Very informative. The basic tour which includes a dram of 12 yr old malt is only £6. A further tasting of an older malt brought the cost to £11. There are more tastings at various prices. Knowledgeable staff. Nice shop with £5 off standard size bottle of whisky.

Tour was informative, staff were great and the whisky brilliant - what more can I say?! Great value for money and every member of our group enjoyed the trip despite some not being big whisky lovers beforehand. The introductory video was lovely, the surroundings were beautiful and staff patiently answered every question fired at them. Special thanks to Meghan our... More

My husband and I made a slight detour on our first day of walking the West Highland Way to visit Glengoyne. The staff was wonderful, the site was beautiful, and of course the whiskey was delicious!

Very educational and impressive visit! The distillery is one of a kind and produces an excellent scotch. The staff were remarkable and the facility tour was nothing short of spectacular. Enjoy a whiskey or buy a bottle!

From all the whiskey tours I have done this was certainly the most hands-on experience. If you're lucky (and most of you will be) the distillery will be running during your visit, so you will be able to experience the distillery when it will be in the process of whiskey-making. The distillery is situated in a beautiful location, which adds... More
