Visited here on a short city break to Glasgow. We were staying in the Theatreland area of Glasgow near to the Buchanan bus station and it is very easy to catch the No. 10 bus which drops you at the gates of the Glengoyne Distillery. The bus driver was very friendly and called us as we arrived at the bus... More

We stopped at the Distillery, and I did a whisky tasting. I ended up buying two miniatures ( partly the weight of carrying something larger, but also partly the cost!) I enjoyed the 21 year old whisky the best, although you cannot buy this in a miniature. This is an enjoyable place to visit if whisky is your thing.

I did the Gold Medal Tour, which was the best distillery (or even any alcohol based maker if you include breweries) tour I've ever done. I'll get back to that, but before I took the tour I also did one of the best hikes, to Dumgoyne and Earl's Seat (the highest point in the Campsies range), which starts just up... More

Came here with my fiance (non whisky drinker) and my Dad & stepmum (whisky drinkers). Its meticulously organised with guided tours at certain times & although it was busy when we attended, they ensured that the tour guides didn't have too many tourists to show round. The first part of the tour is in the bar area where you get... More

The tour at Glengoyne was excellent. We chose the tour that included a more extensive tasting of 5 whiskies and as it turned out, as my wife and I were the only one's who signed up for that, we got to taste more than the standard 5. Our guide was knowledgeable and I learned a lot about whiskies. The Glengoyne... More

We went with Rabbi's tour and this is one of the distilleries we visited and we absolutely like the setting, professional staff, the tour and of course the tastings. We tasted 12 & 18 years. At the start of the tour, we were poured a dram of the 12 year whisky first and sat down to watch a short video... More

I've been on two other Scotland distillery tours and this was by far the greatest one. Go for the upgraded packages - it's worth it if you are a whiskey connoisseur. It is a fantastic setting, super-friendly tour guides and staff - their passion is obvious for what they do. One thing - there is no food onsite so either... More

Very knowledgeable staff who are passionate about their whisky. The tour was great fun. This was my first distillery tour even though I live a few miles from the huge amounts of distilleries in Speyside. Glengoyne has encouraged me to try out some. Great whisky, especially the Teapot Dram. Hopefully I have bought enough to do me until my next... More

The tour was very informative, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The place was very clean, well organized and efficiently run. We paid for the 2 sampling tour which was the 10 or 12 year and the 18 year whiskies. I would highly recommend this adventure to any whisky or whiskey drinker. Cheers.
