Myself and a group of friends and family (19 of us) were booked in for a tour at Glengoyne along with the private dining and tasting experience later in the evening. I cannot recommend Glengoyne and it's staff highly enough as our time here was fantastic. We were greeted with a welcome dram by the waterfall along with an introduction... More

This is my second time visiting the Glengoyne Distillery. The first time we came we were newly married and I was still up for trying scotch. Turns out I actually don't like any scotch but that's not the point. We did the tour and while unremarkable the scenery was amazing. This time we brought our two year old and skipped... More

The staff were extremely passionate about their whisky and it came through on the tour. I liked the whisky wall where it showed you in graphic detail how much whisky is lost each year and how the colour changes over time.

We took the full tour which lasts about an hour, very informative tour, tour guide was awesome, he welcomed questions at every stop of the tour and had a great sense of humour. Our family really enjoyed it and we had a great time. What a great way to start and end a tour with a wee dram...or two:-)

Clearly catering for large numbers and presumably jumps into action when the tour buses arrive. Total lack of interest in us arriving early and on our own.

Glengoyne is a lovely, small distillery. We did the normal tour which was really great, they explained everything really good with a lot of details, which you may not get at other distilleries. It was a very personal feeling to the tour, Jim did a great job! Highly recommended!

You know it is a fun environment when they start out with a shot of whisky! Enjoyable, small tour given by knowledgable young guides with a great sense of humor. Worth the trip!

Very good place to visit. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. My sister had booked it for my dad and I. Really enjoyed the calm and flowing manner in which the tour took us round the place. Staff were always smiling and knew all about the whiskey and the buildings. The shop and tasting rooms are designed and decorated to a very... More
