It is an excellent place to visit but not on a Saturday, the distillery produces six days a week only and Saturdays are for cleaning. I felt that the atmosphere of a running distillery was lost. Quite disappointed I was not told before our visit which was booked months in advance. However, Douglas our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and amusing,... More

I popped in hoping for a break from the wet weather for an hour or two. However, if like me you don't want to drink anything as you are driving then there isn't really anything for you. Sounds a bit daft, but I was hoping to look round the distillery and see the process. The tours all involve drinking though... More

We did not take the whisky tour this time as partner has done many before. We visited the restaurant which is in the roof area of the plain building beside the distillery. There is an impressive water feature at ground level with a staircase that sweeps round it to the restaurant level. There is a mixture of seating, including comfy... More

Great informative tour provided by Campbell. Expand your knowledge of whisky production with a good taster thrown in.

Didn't do the tour but purchased a couple of samples on our whistle-stop visit to Arran. Arran is beautiful. The whisky is excellent. The people are very friendly. The gift shop is well stocked.

Excellent experience, great people, first class! It's always a pleasure to have a chat with Campbell, first with the whisky news. Also had a very nice lunch in Casks upstairs, don't miss out grab a wee dram you would be mad not to

Excellent tour. Well worth a visit whether you'r a big whisky fan or not. We were a large group so we prearranged a visit. The tour was very interesting, and well presented by Billy. We all have a new place in our hearts for Arran Single Malt Whisky.

The tour offers a chance to see a number of parts of the process, provides good quality narrative and is very good value. There is a large variety of products available for purchase including distillery only bottling. Our guide Billydid a great job telling us about the distillery and was enthusiastic in asking questions about what we thought of the... More

My wife and I took the ferry from Ardrossan to Brodick on the Isle of Arran, caught the #324 northbound bus at the ferry terminal, and enjoyed the 38 minute ride to the distillery where we took the entry level "Oak Tour". It was interesting and well worth the price. Our sample of the 14 year single malt, made from... More
