Stopped here with a bus tour we were on. The distillery is picturesque with its setting in the green Scottish hills and the small stream the flows right onto the grounds. Great tour with information on the history of the distillery and about whiskey. Loved seeing the distilling process and tasting the final product (Yummm)! Buy some at the end!!

Great local distillery with high quality whiskey-you pay for what you get. Need to get their act together and heads in the 21st century though! Took some great photos wanting to send them via their wi-fi back home overseas which they said I could use. Still no connection. Then was told it's only for staff and now we can use... More

Visited this distillery as part of a day tour and learned a lot about how whiskey is made and the differences that exist. Sara our guide was really good and explained everything really well. You get to sample whiskey and after the tour you visit the shop where you can even bottle your own whiskey! Definitely recommend this tour even... More

We visited Glengoyne Distillery at the end of a working day, with a business relation who was new to whisky and distilleries. As such this was an excellent choice, as the distillery is very beautiful and is set all alone in a beautiful natural environment. The typical image one has of a Scottish distillery. The visitor shop is nicely laid-out... More

Great time here tasting the lovely malts on offer. We seemed to spend longer in the shop than we did on the tour though. its a well run tour, very informative and fun. I think the teapot dram is my new favourite malt. Fabulous. Thank you to all for a great day out.

Booked into the Whiskey master class tour which was excellent. Kathy our tour guide was very knowledgeable about her product. It was also a cold day but she was very cheerful. We got to taste one 10 year old and one 18 year old and also a blended whiskey. In the master class you get to make your own by... More

My tour of Glengoyne certainly brightened up a rather grey and dismal Sunday afternoon. I went along with my dad on a master blender tour which was bought as a Christmas present for him. From the very beginning we were immersed in the distillery and its beautiful surroundings (an old waterfall that used to provide the water supply for the... More
