Gordon was an incredible host who's passion for whisky and working for Glengoyne truly shone thru. I am not a whiskey drinker but Gordon was so passionate and animate about the whisky making process, that it was a great experience to learn about this.

Visited on the go. As I recently visited another large distillery, i have some basis to compare. It was a bit dissapointing that one could not see and smell the large warehouses. The visit is a bit too much concentrated on the shop.

A great little place to head to if you are looking to understand how Whisky is made. Strongly suggest that if you are in a small group arrive for the early tour - we got there for 10am, lucky enough to beat the tour buses coming through which made for a more pleasant experience.

You don't have to be a whisky lover to enjoy one of the tours of the Glengoyne Distillery. Its nestled in a very picturesque part of the region, but only 30 miles out of Glasgow. We took just the most basic of the tours as we didn't have a designated driver at the time and we cant drink so much... More

On a recent tour, we had the pleasure of visiting Glengoyne Distillery. First of all, the area is beautiful, right on the edge of the Scottish Highlands and Lowlands. The distillery itself is historic and the tour is extremely interesting. Although we prefer brewery tours, we found this tour informative and worthwhile. We started with a taste of the 12... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our time there . All staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Nice gift shop. Learned a great deal about the process of making scotch whiskey. Whether you like Scotch or not, it is a very interesting venue and a nice way to spend a few hours. They have been in operation since I believe 1823.

When in Scotland, you have to visit a scotch distillery. Glengoyne is a perfect stop. It's a small operation, nestled against the start of the Highlands. You start with a sip of scotch and a brief video before your host walks you along the grounds to the various stages of whiskey production. You end at a gift shop where you... More
