Stopped in onroute from Glasgow to Loch Lomond (its about 30-40minutes drive from Glasgow). The tour is well priced, runs at a good pace with fun yet informative guides. Our tour came with two tastings. The distillery is small, which makes it personable and allows you to see all the process. You were introduced with a video, that gave you... More

The staff here are absolutely excellent. I have been here a few times now, but on this particular visit I brought some guests to initiate/educate them to the wonderful world of scotch whisky. I also bottled a very nice cask strength whisky to celebrate our wedding, (which tasted lovely by the way) and the staff were only too happy to... More

Visited on a Sunday, staff were very friendly and helpful and the (wee dram) tour was very good. Further tastings occurred in the shop before we departed with several delicious bottles ;-) No charge was made for our 6 year old daughter and despite being a Sunday, the stills were in operation. A reasonable amount of parking is provided over... More

We loved this tour! When travelling around Scotland, make sure you visit one whisky distillery, it's very interesting all the process behind. The Glengoyne Distillery, is very tourist friendly, the staff is very polite, efficient and the tour is very informative. We also did the tasting with and 12 and 18 year whisky, which by the way was really nice.... More

Great 45 minute tour of the facilities. If you like whisky this is a good tour (£7.50 for the entry tour with plenty if wider options to taste their range). Staff are friendly and plenty of parking in the "lowlands" across the road. They do accept children on the tours but be warned you may encounter large coach tours and... More

We saw this on the map, whilst walking the west highland way, full of history and whisky. Friendly staff who take you on a tour.

The whisky here changed my views on whisky. A definite convert from blended whiskies. One note though, this is not a place to visit if you are disabled or of limited mobility. There are narrow and steep stairs as you might expect in a traditional distillery that has been in operation for nearly 200 years.

Visited the distillery in August, as husband loves whiskey. Well we found out loads on this great visit. Finding out the difference between: single malt, double, and blended was amazing and information I just didn't know. The tour guide was extremely informative and knowledgeable about the distillery and the local area. We took our 12 year old son, who also... More

Spent an hour touring the distillery with tour guide David. He was very amusing and gave a detailed and informative tour of the distillery. All the staff are enthusiastic about their place of work and product. Really good products available in the shop. You won't be disappointed.
