Me and my partner did the wee taster tour with Vivienne. I was slightly concerned as I was on crutches but Vivienne went out of her way to ensure I was comfortable throughout. She was knowledgeable about the craft and presented the tour in a fun and enjoyable way. Will definitely be returning in the future and booking a tour... More

Walked close by this distillery in October while on the West Highland Way. Decided to come back and have a visit. Took the short tour which was excellent. The tour guide, Deirdre, was very good and really made it interesting. Definitely recommend and may come back in future for one of the longer tours.

We traveled with John and Alex to Glengoyne. Both drivers were wonderful! They made the tour a lot of fun. The stops in Luss and at the distillery were picture perfect!

This is a must for all fans of whisky, even those that are not will still really enjoy it.The staff and guides are very friendly and knowledgeable. I chose to take the golden parade tour and I am glad I did. The four drams of whisky they have you taste are nectar.

Just a wee trip form Glasgow but worth it. Classic post card look and even better whiskey. It worth going for the gold tasting tour if you have the time. Guides are knowledgeable, welcoming and fun.

Went to this lovely local disillery and had an hour tour. Different tours and length of tours to choose from. Our guide was full of knowledge and fun and it was fascinating to see the whiskey making process step by step.
