We recently visited Edinburgh and took a day trip out of the city to visit Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond and Glengoyne Distillery. This is a top notch operation. We enjoyed the tour very much and the two tastings we did even more. Great guide, great tour. We recommend it very much.

The location is quite beautiful and the guide is very charming. The whisky? Delicious! The 21 year old was the best.

Amazing location, so close to Glasgow! We tried the 12 and 18 yr olds and both were very enjoyable. The tour was a bit of a letdown as it definitely felt rushed and just going through the motions. You also don't get to see the actual place where the casks are stored (in contrast to every other distillery we've toured).... More

I have been round a number of malt whisky distilleries, all of them very interesting, but the Glengoyne experience is exceptional. The distillery itself is very picturesque, nestled in the hills on the edge of the Campsie Fells with its own wee waterfall and pond just a short drive from Glasgow and not far from Edinburgh either. We were attending... More

Scotch contributes a quarter to UK's exports. A visit to a Single Malt distillery is clearly a must while touring Scotland. If Edinburgh is your base, I suggest visiting Glengoyne distillery. It's just an hour ride away by road. Being a small distillery founded in 1833, Glengoyne offers some lovely moments. Located at the base of a small waterfall, the... More

They offer a small taster of whiskey before the tour starts. They take you around the distillery, showing you where the whisky is made and telling you facts. It is a great place to visit if you like whisky.

Had a guided tour which was great including a tour in the destillery in production and a tasting of two whiskys, 10 and 18 years. Very good guide and the 18-year öl whisky was very tasty. The destillery is very well maintained and located in pretty surroundings.

We loved this distillery and the whiskey of course! Great tour with excellent communication. The setting was just delightful and really enhanced the tour. We would have participated in more than 1 tour if we had the time.
