Despite not being operational, the self guided audio tour is very informative. We enjoyed our visit despite the whiskey not being to our taste.

There are plenty of working distilleries one can visit in Scotland but this one is a non working historic one and maintained by Historic Scotland. The day we visited it was very quiet and we where the only people there but this actually added to our experience as we took ourselves around with the audio guide and had plenty of... More

We are Historic Scotland members so this was on our list of places to visit. This distillery is no longer working so gave a different insight into how whisky is made. Having been on a few Distillery tours this was different as you get an audio guide instead of someone taking you round. This means you can go at your... More

Even though the distillery was closed when we went. t was still beautiful to have so well kept and maintained. It is no longer in operation, but still fascinating to see everything up so close.

You can see and touch everything, unlike many other tours. Audio tour is great, so if you really want to understand the process of whisky making, this one helps a lot!

There are many chances to tour distilleries, but not many to get hands on with the production and poke your nose into all areas. With a great audio tour to guide you, and knowledgable custodians to answer questions, this is a great place to get the lowdown on production. They also sell a wide variety of whiskeys and we went...

This is a historic distillery and as such gives more access to areas that you would not be able to get hands-on in a operating distillery. There is an audio guide which provides a useful tour of the buildings from start of the whisky making process to the end result. Only needs a couple of hours to complete the visit.... More

This is a Scottish heritage site not a working distillery. The woman on reception seemed surprised when we asked about tours. The surprise was reasonable, I'm not sure why anyone would take time out to visit here. You can get the same information at other distilleries but from a human not an audio guide. Move on quickly but better still,... More

This old distillery is a great way to start off the day of visiting working distilleries. We did the self-guided audio tour and were able to spend time viewing the equipment and the process up-close. Many of the components were similar to the ones still being used. We bought the Scotland Explorer Pass which gave us "free" admission. It would... More

We have toured many working distilleries but still enjoyed this - we practically had the place to ourselves! (Except for a few pigeons...) The audio guide was concise, and you could look at all equipment close up because it wasn't in use. Admission includes a free dram of whisky at the end - and the staff are friendly and happy...
