We did this tour quite a while ago now and really enjoyed it. Very friendly tour guide and great selection of drams at the end. Small tour but with a more personal feel, recommend to others.

Arriving in Oldmeldrum with our two Danish friends, we found the Glen Garioch distillery nestling in the centre of town down the appropriately named 'Distillery Road'! This small road runs right through the distillery, giving a historical feel to our visit. We could imagine many,...More

Sorry we rented a car but you can catch a bus from Union Square going to Elgin or Inverurie and that will stop in Old Meldrum, the distillery is in the tiny village center
