Old distillery that is preserved by the Scotland tourism / heritage group. The only distillery on the historic passport, a nice self-guided visit with audio paddles.

Plan for about an hour on this audio-guided tour. But you can spend as much time as you want. Lovely shop.

I was there in a group of 5 and there were a few other small groups as well which were being attended to with the tour. Not sure why they are not returning the call. But I guess you can drop in directly.

No scheduling required and there are staff present to assist. Drive in, park and walk over to the distillery shop and the staff there will greet you and start you on your tour. I hope this answers your question. Enjoy.
