This independently owned distillery has a great stunningly beautiful location. The tour starts with a tasting and an excellent video. Note that drivers can get a pot so that they can take their sample with them to taste later - great idea! Then a tour of the distillery itself with a very well informed guide and a great explanation of... More

After seeing the distillery in an episode of Still Game, it was great fun to visit and get the tour ourselves. The guide was informative and kept our attention with many interesting facts about the distillation process. The setting is absolutely beautiful! Loch Lomand is not too far and so it's easy to include the distillery in a day of... More

I was taken to this distillery by my son who has moved to live in Scotland. I am not a whiskey drinker but interested in the process by which it is made so this was a great choice. Initially we were shown a short video on the factory whilst having the opportunity to sample their ten year old malt. This... More

Very informative tour. Guides were very helpful and ready to answer any question. If you are a single malt lover, you must try their 21 year old... pure liquid gold :) Word of caution on getting there: Dont be fooled by the half day tours offered by most tour operators in Glasgow. Just take the public bus which will save... More

Had a lovely friend from the Channel Islands visiting Scotland who had never been around a whisky distillery. I however have visited several over the years. We arrived at Glengoyne and purchased our tickets, had a very short walk to the waterfall which I must say wasn't the most impressive I've seen. Delighted to hear later that the water used... More

Glengoyne is a beautiful little distillery run by people who really do have a passion for what they do. My girlfriend and I did the whiskey and chocolate tasting tour and this was very good for giving extra information about the whiskeys and how they are now being matched to meals. The 21 year old whiskey which you sample on... More

We didn't take the tour because we had 7 distillery tours before our visit at Glengoyne distillery. We asked for a tasting only and got a warm welcome. The tasting was very generous and we got a lot of information about their different whiskies. The atmosphere has been familiar and the woman behind the counter was very friendly.

Was given the malt master experience as a birthday present - had year (actually just over ) to redeem. This was great - spent afternoon tasting 5 Glengoyne malts from the vaults and used these to create a 220ml bottle - I selected my 3 favourites from 5 for mine but what you create will be up to you depending...

I'm not a whisky drinker myself but my fiancé and I went here and i was pleasantly surprised. The team of tour guides are friendly and we'll informed and so make the experience a good one. It's nice that you are taken around the actual working distiller so you really get a feel for the process.
