Only £8 for adults, includes a dram of 10yr old Arran whiskey and Arran Gold. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and as it’s a small set up, not a huge amount of walking. Good hour spent.

If you are on Arran the distillery is definitely worth a visit. The cafe is upstairs and offers an excellent platter of local cheeses, ham and smoked salmon (bread was a bit stale, but lovely oatcakes). The tour is really interesting and our guide Jim...More
