We stumbled across the distillery whilst out for a summer drive. Great well maintained museum. Good guided tour info and a place to picnic too. Well worth a visit

This distillery isn't operating. So you can take as long as you want to look at the process and how it all worked. There is a small gift shop with samples and items for sale. Worth the stop if you are in the area and you want to know how scotch is made.

I would recommend a visit here before any visit to a working distillery. As said before this is not in production, but a excellent way to get up close to the equipment and get to understand the process of distilling. For £5 you get to have an audio tour and a peedie dram of Roderick Dhu blended whisky containing some... More

Having visited 3 distilleries, my husband and I were reluctant to visit this distillery which no longer operates. However, it was part of our Scottish Explorer package, so we decided to go. It was a fabulous learning experience. Although the distillery no longer functions, the self-guided tour filled in some gaps and reinforced our understanding of the process. The gentleman... More

This was such a pleasant surprise and so much fun! I am so, so glad we came here and I highly recommend this to EVERYONE!! The gentlemen who worked there were so nice and kind. This is a closed distillery and after having toured an open one and this closed one, I liked this much better! You get to look... More

Not a working distillery but a visitor attraction run by Historic Scotland which is a good place to visit for all the family.

We selected this distillery among several others constituting the Malt Whisky Trail in order to be able to come close to all the equipment and go through the whole process. Was it a good idea? I really cannot tell, as we have no benchmark. Having said that, I would consider visiting at least one of the Malt Whisky Trail being... More

The staff were friendly and very informative, had a great half hour with the but, as the distillery has been closed for a long time, didn't bother with the artificial tour.

This distillery is not in operation. So if you are interested in just the buildings interesting but otherwise not really!

This was the surprise hit of a recent castle-themed tour of Scotland - I only called in because I was passing nearby, but it was utterly absorbing and beautifully presented. You go round with an audio guide which explains the distilling process well and introduces you to some wonderful words. You can get right up to and peer into the... More
