Finally got to visit the Glengoyne distillery after being a big fan of their single malt. Glengoyne advertise their distillery as one of the prettiest in Scotland and i have to say they are not wrong - the distillery has its own waterfall and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. I did the cask strength tasting which incorporated a full tour... More

Staying with relatives, near Galsgow, before a trip to Aviemore, we decided on a whim to visit this distillery on the one and only wet day in our week in Scotland. Despite having recently developed a taste for, and interest in whisky, I had never visited a distillery before. I was first very impressed by how picturesque this place is.... More

Between Glasgow andLoch Lomond and so easy to plan a visit on route. Tours around the distillery every hour. £7.50 which includes the tour, a dram and a £5 voucher to spend on a purchase of whiskey in the shop. Well organised. NO cafe facilities, but a decent cafe at a nearby Garden Centre

After a wet day around the Trossachs , we thought we would visit the distillery with a family friend from abroad who enjoys a wee whisky . we went for the tasting tour tour at 10 pounds and its fantastic value for money considering you get two quality drams thrown in. We were intially greeted by Kathy who was very... More

Visited on a wet day, but even so, we received a warm welcome & a great tour with Bill. Tour started with a video & wee dram which was excellent. Tour was very informative & Bill did very well to include the foreign tourists, even throwing in a few French words here & there! Tour ended with another dram. There... More

We met up with a party of 12 from Germany. £9 each was the group price which included two drams - 10-year-old and 18-year-old gave us a warm glow. Lovely setting. First class German-speaking guide and friendly staff in the shop,

Due to the fact that my fiancee was driving a small discount was recieved as she couldnt drink. This was very welcome, as was the stunning drive up to and... More

Visited this distillery on a Sunday, so, unfortunately it wasn't working, but the whole experience was very rewarding. A slight hiccup at the start because we arrived at 10 past the hour, to be told that the tours were on the hour, so there was a bit of a wait. We had a voucher for the visit, and it said... More
